ADELAIDE HAS A NEW FISH PALACE
The cleanest, best-managed fisheries in the Great Southern Ocean lap the shores of Adelaide and South Australia, but for years there's been a dearth of great fish restaurants - everything is exported. Peter (above) and Caroline Louca are setting this shit straight at their Louca's Seafood Grill at 242 Hutt Steet in the Paris Quarter of the city. Peter's the son of the revered Mario of the Parade Fish Cafe in Norwood. Eight fishy wine nuts went to Louca's last night, having booked in advance, begging Peter to bake us a couple of big'uns. We took wines not usually associated with fish, but Peter's beautiful snappers, with befores and afters [10/10], sang perfect shanties with our tricky BYOs, which were not on his list. And his list is not to be snorted at. Arrange, call, surrender: (08) 8232 6792. Or just GO.
