Formerly the Cafe Des Artistes, this candlelit boutique restaurant mixes high art with haute cuisine. Located in a converted gray-and-yellow bungalow at the east end of Simonton Street near Truman Avenue, Pisces lives up to its name, plating some of the best seafood in a city that lives to fish and on fish. If perfectly prepared seafood perfectly served isn’t enough to get you interested, inside you’ll be treated to original signed Andy Warhol prints of celebrities like Liz Taylor and Mick Jagger, as well as his famous Campbell’s Tomato Soup can. The pronto service is also unexpected in a “what’s-your-hurry?” city. Pisces properly touts its lobster tango mango, Maine lobster cooked in cognac and served with shrimp in saffron butter, mango and basil, which we found to be both subtle and succulent, but the yellowtail Atocha (yellowtail snapper sauteed with shrimp, scallops and lemon brown butter) is just as tasty. If you’re a chocoholic, don’t leave without tasting the double chocolate mousse served with raspberry coulis.
