I've tried a few fish dishes at South End at the Station, and it's honestly a little difficult deciding which one I liked the best. So for your viewing purposes I posted three (you can thank me later, or better yet when you are diving into one of these three fish dishes). Voted the Best New Restaurant in New Canaan, South End at the Station often has three staple fish dishes, and sometimes a fish special on their menu.
I tried the Montauk Skate Wing on my most recent jaunt to South End and, oh my goodness, it was so good. It came with braised lentils, caramelized fennel, arugula and an orange-sherry vinaigrette. The fish was succulent and perfectly cooked, and the orange-sherry vinaigrette was well complimented by the richness of the braised lentils.
You won't go wrong with the salmon at South End. The clean taste of the chilled asparagus, radish and pine nut salad and lemony goat yogurt and dill dressing is perfectly complimented by the robustness and warmth of the salmon. Plus the skin always has a perfect sear, which keeps the salmon moist and tender.
I loved the freshness of this halibut dish. It is served with different accompaniments based on the season (when I had it last it was served with peas, mushrooms, asparagus and leeks - probably more of a spring combination) and it is currently being served with peas, sour cream onions, romaine, red veined sorrel and crispy ham. I will definitely have to go back to try the new halibut combination!
