I was never really into seafood, so when my friends took me to Joe Forte's I was a bit skeptical about the delicatessen that they offered.

As we went early, we could get a discount for the three course menu and we payed only $28. It was a kind of happy hour. :)

Anyway, I tried out the oysters and some fish at my friend's recommendations and I have to admit, they were delicious. I didn't think seafood could be so tasty. I'm glad I was wrong and didn't let my 'fear' of the unknown overcome me! :)
