I always take notice of this little place on Leonard and Plainfield both because of its appearance and its name.
The Flying Bridge Fish Market seems really retro-looking to me with all the wood and groovy signage...
So... "Flying Bridge?"
At first, I thought the name was just weird and random but the oracle of wikipedia says:
"A flying bridge is a (usually open) area on top of, or at the side of, a ship's pilothouse, or closed bridge, that serves as an operating station for the ship's officers in good weather or when maneuvering in port, where good views along the ship sides are important. It is also a raised, usually second story cockpit on a smaller boat, such as a sport-fisher."
Anyway, it looks cute and old and one day I will check it out.
Then there's this place a little ways down Plainfield that I'd totally overlook by its appearance...
But then you notice the unfortunate name... "Sanitary Seafood."
I'd really like to try some fried fish at the Flying Bridge, word is it's pretty awesome!
I'm also really curious to find out if the seafood at Sanitary Seafood is truly sanitary.
I don't know, that's kind of a bold claim, guys! :)
