Is the bluegill served at restaurants wild caught or farm raised? The Big Ten Pub has it year round.

I get mine from my ice fishing brother-in-law.

No idea. I was just offering up the wild speculation I came up with last summer.

Jeez. Both Magnus and Ocean Grill have private events tonight.

Well, now you know why I asked. But I will also say that the scallop I had at Fresco during Restaurant Week was really good, and the calamari steak I had at Magnus a few years ago was brilliant.

I'm a big swordfish fan (Katsu-ya in Appleton does a mean one, hibachi-style), so Blue Marlin is high on my list.

Has anyone tried the new sushi available at the Coop? They have brought in an Okinawan sushi guy who is putting together beautiful to-go sushi boxes. I am hoping he is willing to add a few more vegetarian options before I try it, but meanwhile it seems to be selling pretty well.
