LOVE.FISH
Sydney, NSW

If you really wanted to follow love.fish's sustainable efforts, then maybe you could walk home from the Rozelle seafood restaurant. The giant blackboard of the fish diner lists ‘Fish We Love' – the ones that have made the list are loved because they are abundant and sustainably sourced. You too can tastefully appreciate them battered, grilled or crispy skinned. Or if you're after something a little different, there are dishes such as kingfish carpaccio and salmon poori rolls.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
I didn't exactly book into love.fish with sustainability in mind – nor do I ever even think twice about ethical issues when ordering a piece of fish. I'm not proud of this, but, I am also very forthcoming to being educated (especially anything to do with food). So it was with an open mind that I headed over the Anzac Bridge to love.fish.

Located just off Victoria Road, at the Rozelle end of Darling Street, is this gorgeous little restaurant. The fit out is clean and modern however lime "green" tinges add a freshness to the otherwise black-and-white theme of the restaurant. A huge mirror runs along one side of the restaurant giving the long, narrow interior a more spacious impression and allows any guests who are not facing the open kitchen a glimpse of the chefs at play.

On a Thursday night, this neighbourhood eatery is absolutely chockers. Owner Michelle and Michael Grand-Milkovic opened love.fish with a simple philosophy in mind: to deliver beautiful seafood in the most sustainable way possible. While the restaurant staff don't seem to preach to their customers about ethical or sustainable eating, the food speaks for the love.fish philosophy instead. Each dish- from the Hiramasa kingfish carpaccio to the King George whiting fillets – was refreshingly uncomplicated. The carpaccio wasn't laden with "extras", only a simple splash of shellfish oil accentuated the sweetness of the kingfish while a couple of wedges of pink grapefruit added a tart contrast. A sprinkling of macro herbs on top and the dish was picture perfect. Each of the main dishes at love.fish are served very simply – no fanciness – just the piece of fish (grilled or beer battered), served with a wedge of lemon. However, with over ten side dishes and house-made sauces, this is where the excitement lies. Unable to choose between the butternut pumpkin, black lentil and mint pesto or the cauliflower mash, green beans and romesco, we go for both. Add a crisp glass of sauvignon blanc and we are in seafood-heaven.

The tagline for this restaurant is "the fish bar with a green heart" and as I scrape the plate of the last ounce of romesco sauce, I can't think of another sentence that could describe it better. I just wish I lived down the road because, with a philosophy like theirs, I could happily justify eating at love.fish a couple of times a week.
