For years, Bill Dugan has run an "occasional" restaurant out of his seafood shop, the Fish Guy. Now he's given the antiseptically clean and bright space a renovation, converting one fish case into a dining bar and adding a few permanent tables in front. It's a shame that the food served isn't doing justice to the quality of the product: You're better off grabbing some raw fish to cook at home than risking dishes like a "green goddess" salad with tired lettuce or a very plain, barely toasted roll with overly chopped up lobster meat.
