Day-off dream. I brought my college age daughter up for a witch experience in Salem and sat inside. Nice choice of seating though both outside by the water hugging the restaurant (up from Salem Harbor) and inside. My first time here. They seated us by a window. Service picked me up when I had gotten up to check out the oysters in the raw bar on ice. She was there every time she needed to be and more with great recommendations...Had the best tuna experience yet in life today at Finz...that's saying tons for me. In most great restaurants (top 10 in a trip advisor city which I intersect with another reservation site and yelp) when fresh Tuna is an option, I order a seared but raw preparation as a change to sushi and as a slow bump for those chefs I have never tested out for fear that they will overcook a great specimen...about 15 times a year. All the planets must have been aligned..or the a proper potion placed. This chef came through big time..very skilled. Fresh...I mean really fresh... Tuna steak sliced thin with a quick sear on the ends with black and white sesame seeds leaving the loin alone barely touched by the heat and placed on bed on seasoned (to sweet) seaweed salad next to a small puddle of wasabi sauce. An appropriate flattened rice portion (perfectly executed) was served to the side topped with a spicy tuna roll type sauce and guacamole on a bed of extruded like squash strands..almost noodle like. The squash must have only been blanched for only 15- 20 s as it was cooked perfectly and each strand told its own story--possibly some oil on it. After I made a big stink about this great dish, I heard that the the chef is from San Diego- bringing a little spice to this place. It was so great, I kept giving a slice away to my daughter! Other comments: Chardonnay by the glass from Australia was well priced. All dozen Oysters on the half were perfectly shucked, absolutely fresh and presented with lots of brine in reserve..I elected raw horseradish and cocktail sauce. The horseradish had a light heat to it. Trip advisor has rarely steered me wrong..This is my first comment on the board for you, and I'm trying to keep the faith.
