Fish 'N Chips Update: Lunch at Blackstone

Yesterday, I headed to Blackstone for some of the highly recommended fish and chips. I had never been there before and understood, the second I walked in the door, why. These are the types of places I instinctively hate. Sterile and generic, the place seems to be aiming to look and feel like a national chain restaurant. (Yes, I'm a snob when it comes to this stuff.)

As for the fish and chips, the batter was crunchy and well-seasoned, if a bit thick for my taste (my BF referred to it as "fluffy."). The fries were a pretty big disappointment--nothing special and slightly flaccid. Overall, it was a tasty lunch, but I still think the best local version I've had was at The Grill at Green Hills in Whole Foods.
