Nico's at Pier 38

Ok here I am and I am alive and kicking. There are many reasons why I haven’t posted in a while. I started racing motorcycles again, work, attempting to have a social life, yada yada yada… So, anyhow I finally visited Nicos back in July and only now I am going to complete my post on it.

It has been a while since I visited so my post will be quite short, not like my posts are long in the first place…

I ordered the grilled marlin with dill butter sauce.

I was a bit disappointed with my choice. I found that the marlin was over cooked and thus ended up very dry. Also the sauce was very bland and flavorless.

My friend ordered the double cheeseburger with French fries. He didn’t feel like eating any seafood (which I feel is sacrilege at a seafood joint), so I suggested the burger because Reid (who committed the same crime) enjoyed his.

He seemed to enjoy it, as I remember, because in no time the burger was gone. Either that or he was very hungry.

I do want to revisit Nicos and try other offerings there to get a better sampling of what they are all about and to see if my experience was just a "off" day for them.
