“I love fish in a bag. I think the Harry’s pop-ups with Vetri and Sawyer inspired him to do it at Genuine. Fish in cartoccio was one of the first things I made at Dilullo’s. It’s nothing new, but that’s what’s great about it. Rolling those bags up man? I remember that shit.”
We asked line cook Jason Arroyo about the simple preparation yesterday. After the fish is wrapped up in parchment with a few ingredients and a great compound butter, the little packages quickly bake in the kitchen oven, rather than next to the wood fire which would be a challenge to manage during a busy service.
Knowing Bradley’s penchant for fish-cutting, there will likely be more bags to come before he tires and moves on. Yesterday’s Mutton Snapper was deliciously smokey and rich, but I have my fingers crossed that we’ll get some cobia in there next. If it’s anything like what we tasted at Greenhouse Pizzeria, he’s got that one in the bag!
