Sneakeater Posted August 27, 2015 Share Posted August 27, 2015 It was a fad in LA restaurants for a few years, touted as poor man's lobster. Seems to have disappeared. But you can get monkfish liver at most sushi bars. Not only in LA. I'm pretty sure Le Bernardin was doing it when I worked there in 1996. But like so many trash fish that are popularized, it was overfished and became scarce. I guess it's rebounding, as it's now on the "Good Alternatives" list from Seafood Watch. There was a great monkfish dish on the menu at Rebelle when it opened several months ago, but (a) the dish isn't on the menu any more, and (b) Rebelle's not in New Jersey. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
