There's seafood being served again at the former site of Sea Rocket Bistro, which was was briefly a mac and cheese eatery before new proprietor Pete DeCoste took hold of the 30th Street restaurant earlier this summer for his eponymous Pete's Seafood and Sandwich that officially opened today.
DeCoste has made several cosmetic changes to the space, including moving the front entrance to open into a casual sports bar with counter-height seating while the smaller dining room has a new East Coast waterfront-themed mural; a front patio will be added as soon as the permitting goes through.
The Boston native, who's now a North Park resident, is launching with a menu that ranges from clam chowder, fish and chips with handcut fries and homemade tartar sauce and lobster rolls to oyster or shrimp po' boys; DeCoste tells Eater that he plans to eventually feature even more New England-style seafood specialities. There are also signature East Coast sandwiches, including subs filled with Italian cold cuts or marinara-sauced chicken, meatball or eggplant parmesan.
Operating from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Pete's Seafood and Sandwich will offer happy hour prices on drinks all day, from $3 bottled beer to $6 wine and draft beer.
