Santos’ newest venture will bring Seaside New England Favorites to Marblehead

Noted celebrity chef and restaurateur Jason Santos is pleased to announce the opening of B & B Fish, his fourth restaurant venture with longtime Buttermilk & Bourbon Chef Jeff DeCandia, on November 2nd. Located in Marblehead at 195 Pleasant Street, the highly anticipated B & B Fish will act as an elevated seafood spot with a menu full of creative high-quality summertime seaside favorites in a limited service environment.

Drawing on New England’s shoreline seafood cuisine, the sleek yet casual restaurant will boast a light and breezy atmosphere with hues of blue throughout to give it an ocean vibe. B & B Fish will offer guests an innovative chef-driven menu focusing on New England seafood favorites with Southern-influences. Santos, who currently owns and operates Boston’s Abby Lane, Buttermilk & Bourbon and Citrus & Salt, aims to bring some whimsy and fun to the Marblehead shoreline.

The menu will offer summertime fried beachy favorites, like Beer Battered Fish and Chips, Friend Shrimp, Scallops, Duck Fat Fried Whole Belly Clams, Crispy Pork Belly and Buttermilk & Bourbon’s Famous Fried Chicken. Sauces will be selected by guests who can mix and match flavors. Those include: Tarragon Tartar Sauce, Crystal Cocktail Sauce, Creole Remoulade and Jason’s signature White BBQ Sauce.

On Sundays, B & B Fish will offer fresh lobster rolls, served hot or cold and paired with homemade salt and vinegar kettle chips. There will be a “Blue Haired Special” daily and the first one will be a root beer float with cake batter soft serve ice cream to commemorate the opening.

Sides will also be a big component of the menu and will include: New England Clam Chowder, Buttermilk & Bourbon’s Signature Biscuits, Citrus & Salt’s signature Mexican Street Corn, Black Truffle Parmesan Fries and Vidalia Onion Rings. Desserts and sweet treats will include Fresh Beignets, Fried Oreos, Soft Serve Cones and a variety of creative ice cream sundaes.

Designed by Erica Diskin of Assembly Designs, the intimate space will offer a vibrant scene with nautical nods and whimsical touches. Glows of neon blue signs and pops of blue murals will be found throughout. The space will offer indoor dining and patio seating, as well.

B & B Fish will be open daily for lunch and dinner from 11a until 7p every Sunday through Thursday and from 11a-8p on Fridays and Saturdays. There will also be takeout and delivery available.
