The upstairs dining room at Jockey Hollow Bar & Kitchen has been re-imagined and opened as daPesca on February 6th. The new space, as the name indicates, is now a “sparklingly fresh, locally sourced, seafood-centric restaurant”.

I’m excited about this new concept primarily because ultra-talented Chef Craig Polignano is at the helm in the kitchen. The menu is nearly exclusively-sourced from off the coast of New Jersey, with captains out of Point Pleasant and Barnegat Light providing daPesca much of their catch.

Chef Polignano offers a four-course $86 prix fixe experience, in addition to a seasonal $116 chef’s tasting menu for the entire table as well. From Tuesday through Friday the daPesca menu is also available a la carte. Saturday nights, the restaurant offers either the four course or the six course prix fixe menu only.

Is it wrong that I already know what I want to order when I visit? Calamari a la Plancha, Squid Ink Cavatelli, NJ Skate Wing and the Caputo Brothers Ricotta Salata!
