Fish: Urban Restaurant | Asbury Park

On my first night in Asbury Park, I decided to try Fish: Urban Restaurant on Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park. I am so glad I did because the food was amazing!

I loved the Little Bitches, which were East Coast raw oysters. They were sweet, and the vinegar dip they had next to the oysters were so good! I will admit I did share with the waitress that I've been eating raw seafood since I was 7 years old. Every year until 2001, my mom's family would head to Cape May every week around my birthday. My Pop-pop LOVED raw clams and oysters. One night at dinner, I was curious and asked Pop-pop about what he was eating. He let me try a raw clam and I loved it. I helped him eat the raw clams. I remember bringing sushi to elementary school every once in a while for lunch. I always brought my own lunch and I remember the kids just staring at me, like I was weird. I didn't care, I loved raw fish.

I had fish and chips for dinner, which I enjoyed. The fish was cooked perfectly and the service was prompt and courteous. Fish Urban Dining was a bit pricey, but I would recommend the restaurant.

Cornbread was awesome too!

I have decided that I am going to write longer pieces about my travels, then post them during the slower months of blogging. Along with the pictures.


  1. You're adventurous in your food choices, Jessica Marie. I wish I could say the same about myself, but I have a sensitive tummy. My sensitivity to onions has turned into a full-blown allergy.


    1. Hi Janie,

      Oh no! Allergies are never fun. I'm lactose intolerant and don't eat pork for spiritual reasons; but outside of those parameters, I'm pretty adventurous.
