Big Fish in a Small Ocean

This past weekend I finally got to try Splash Seafood Restaurant. Splash is located in the Homestead Building at the corner of 3rd and Locust in Downtown Des Moines. I went there hoping for some good seafood with more of an upscale flavor. I found exactly that! Aquariums fill the three different floors of the restaurant. Giant underwater mural art can be found on the walls that adds a cozy and vibrant feel. Reggae music plays in the background which even further adds to the chill atmosphere. So definitely the atmosphere was great! I found it a great place for a date.
As for the food…………One word……………….WONDERFUL! The Chilean Sea bass was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The Lobster was equally as good. My Calamari and Shrimp appetizer was the best I have had in a long time. The real surprise for me was the dessert. I split a Cherry Sorbet with my date and it was perfect. I don’t even like cherries but this mouth watering treat was the perfect end to a great meal.
Sure, the meal was a little bit pricey. Definitely a special occasion place (unless you are rich). If you are trying to impress or just have a good date night, check out Splash. You won’t regret it.

More good news……. I am now engaged. Time to settle down in life. :)

I must admit the food was good there when I visited Des Moines last month, but my favorite is Rasputin back home in Brooklyn. They had a Russian-French menu with an amazing Chilean Sea Bass with baby vegetables. We also had Crepes with Red Caviar and Sour Cream which was delicious! Thomas, try it out when you come here!
