Latest Cahoots news and reviews at del.icio.us
JM ate the cod fish fry with fries and a lemonade.
Nichole ate the perch fish fry with twice-baked potato.
The bill was $26, or $13/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Cahoots a B+ (see our grading rubric).
Cahoots is just off the bike trail in Verona, in an old railroad building. There's moderate swivel factor and a faint smoky stench. (We learned later from the Verona Press that when the city was instituting a smoking ban, Cahoots was among the more vocal anti-ban businesses.)
Anyway, ancient history. The fish fry is decent; the perch order was comprised of 5 nice filets, which were just a little dry on the edges. The 3 pieces of cod had lots of body and moistness but not too much grease.
As for sides, the fries were average but we made a twice baked mistake. The house-made potato half was heavily Season Salted. (Why do we ever not heed MFF?) A yeasty storebought-seeming roll, some very dilly tartar, and a really good, vibrant coleslaw filled out the meal. It turns out to fill you up, though, and a doggie bag was employed.
Among the sporty memorabilia, heavy on vintage golf photos, was a framed review of Cahoots' fish fry by Chris Martell. She, too, praised it; we left not knowing much about Cahoot's non-finned food.
