When the owners got the chance to open a restaurant on Ave P between Ocean Parkway and East 5th St in Midwood, they knew that the area would benefit from upscale, expertly cooked Italian cuisine. A few years ago they moved to a bigger location with a party room on Avenue M and Ocean Avenue to accommodate the parties they kept getting.
Their motto is “Kosher fine dining – redefined” is evidently true when you walk into the spacious, sophisticatedly designed restaurant. A curtain of silver beads cascade from the chandelier, perfectly complimenting the turquoise and shimmering silver interior. The elegance displayed in the restaurant shows up on the plates.
But don’t let the name Pescada fool you. Opened in February 2015, this spacious and brightly decorated restaurant boasts a full Italian menu. While they do have truly excellent fish entrees, the appetizers, pastas, pizzas, salads and delectable desserts certainly hold their own on the menu. The Pumpkin Carpaccio appetizer is already famous – a beautifully plated dish of thinly sliced butternut squash with crushed pistachios, shredded feta cheese, pomegranate seeds, olive oil, sea salt, and topped with micro greens. But the star of the menu is the sixteen-item fish section. The Surprise Salmon, a marinated, seasoned grilled salmon topped with a tropical mango and pineapple salsa is the perfect blend of spicy and sweet.
Pescada’s sophisticated décor, combined with the excellent food, will ensure that it’s one of your new favorite spots for lunch or dinner. It is the perfect place to bring friends, family, and a great place to impress clients. As you comfortably sit and revel in the charmingly sophisticated ambiance and partake in the spectacular cuisine, you will then truly appreciate Pescada’s maxim, “Kosher fine dining – redefined.”
