Santos’ newest venture will bring Summertime New England Seafood to Marblehead
Noted celebrity chef and restaurateur Jason Santos is pleased to announce the opening of his fourth restaurant venture with longtime Buttermilk & Bourbon Chef Jeff DeCandia, B & B Fish this summer. 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 and 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 include: Tartar Sauce, Crystal Cocktail Sauce, Jalapeno Aioli, Carolina BBQ and Jason’s signature White BBQ Sauce.
Sides will also be a big component of the menu and will include: New England Quahog Chowder, Fried Pickles, Buttermilk and Bourbon’s Signature Biscuits, New Orleans Style Street Corn and Red Onion Rings. Desserts and sweet treats will include Fresh Fried Beignets, Soft Serve Cones and very 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. The space will offer a dining room that seats 20 guests and a large patio with about 30 seats for guests.
B & B Fish will be open daily for lunch and dinner and is located at 195 Pleasant Street, along Marblehead’s shoreline. Please visit www.chefjasonsantos.com for up-to-date information or follow the restaurant on social media at @bandbfishmarblehead.
