Jim, you're one of my favorite posters of any forum of all time, so don't take this the wrong way. Just stop going to any restaurant that charges more than 15 dollars a meal, forever. You'll never be happy.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/02/scien ... d=all&_r=0Known in the food business as “aquatic chicken” because it breeds easily and tastes bland, tilapia is the perfect factory fish; it happily eats pellets made largely of corn and soy and gains weight rapidly, easily converting a diet that resembles cheap chicken feed into low-cost seafood.

It's the Perry Como of fish. Bland, inoffensive, and easily raised, like chicken. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/02/scien ... d=all&_r=0jim wrote: They got the bland part of the Tilapia correct. I honestly don't know what Tilapia is, I just know I'm starting to see it pop up on menus alot.

I think my favorite fish is Tuna where they blacken in on the outside and it's raw inside. But again, I ordered that at a very well respected seafood place in Naperville, IL last year and it sucked. They didn't blacken it enough or used some weird rub or something. It was $40. The year before I paid $20 at Bokampers Sports Bar and Grill in Plantation, FL and it was out of this world good.
In fact I got some weird intestinal bug that lasted for almost a month from that place in Naperville.
This place - avoid it: http://sullivanssteakhouse.com/. I know you are saying well you should have gotten steak since that is their speciality, but I saw that tuna on there and started thinking back to the last time I had it at Bokampers and couldn't resist.

Yeah. Ahi tuna is good. And pretty easy. Just needs a pepper crust usually. Rare. Of course its usually the same price as a decent steak.
