From My Menu

Chef Lissa Doumani reviews Trout head at Al's Place
$$$ | Seafood | Modern | American
Mission
"A trout's head is marinated and then cooked into a sublime, sticky collagen goodness. Just suck on the bones to get an umami bomb of flavor and texture. The menu changes frequently but get this if it's offered."
Chef Ethan Speizer reviews Black cod head at Al's Place
$$$ | Seafood | Modern | American
Mission
"Might be intimidating to some diners, but you're not going to Al's Place to eat conservatively are you? Every morsel takes some effort to discover, but it's the best part of the fish. Check under the jaw for perhaps your best bite of the evening."
