In northern California's Napa Valley, where I was Patch editor for more than two years, we had a very lively group of more than 2,000 Facebook fans and I often turned to them for ideas, opinions and recommendations.
So this Monday, technically my first as editor here (I actually started over the weekend because of the storm), I thought I'd give it a try on the MV Patch Facebook page.
Here's what I asked:
"It's Lundi Gras, the day before Mardi Gras and so Lent begins Wednesday. Where are the best places on the Island to get fish on Friday? Eat-in, carry-out or raw to cook, please let me know your favorites for a story on MV Patch. Thanks! Louisa"
Here's what you said:
- "I recently had a fish sandwich at the Ocean View that was really good!" (Jessica Townes)
- "Fish & chips @ the Newes."(John Robert Hill)
- "Net Result!" (Will Hunter)
- "Net Result, Larsen's, The Bite, Seafood Shanty." (Alicia Marotta Linihan)
- "Our favorites are Newes from America, Seafood Shanty, Overlook Tavern, and Offshore Ale Company." (Kimberly Fuson)
(Note: The Bite, Larsen's and Seafood Shanty are closed for the season; the Net Result reopens today with fresh fish and a limited menu of fish and chips on Fridays during Lent.)
- Because I ate there yesterday, I'd have to add Menemsha Fish Market, where Stanley Larsen is serving fresh fish sandwiches, lobster rolls and more - check the market's Facebook page for the daily lunch specials.
Any other suggestions? Please tell us in the comments.
