Fish Bar caught a taste for chilled Lobster Gazpacho with tomato, cucumber and a whisper of spice, and let go Lobster Bisque until the leaves turn rust and scarlet.  Summer ceviches are made with tomato, jicama, Serrano chile, avocado, and lime; and tartares are made with cucumber, red onion, cayenne and dill.  Fish Bar also reeled in a new Tuna salad with avocado, celery and capers.  Fish Bar’s black board specials will continue to change often based on sustainability reports, weather conditions and mood rings.

We love love love that they included the Obama Family Chili Recipe. You miiiight remember it from the 2008 campaign and also a fundraiser this year during the Super Bowl. Most of the pinning on the recipe board are baked goods and other food nerd creations that are decorated Obama logo + all, but their following is growing enormously already. Super stoked for any other family recipes they pin. Hmmm, hottie Obama Chef Sam Kass, what are you gonna share next?  Have you tried this Obama chili recipe? Did you love? Tell us!
