Square One Fish Company may be only two years old, but is fast becoming the place Athenians choose for their seafood. Being an avid fisherman, and Miami restaurant owner for close to twenty years, Joe Casio knows a thing or two about how to cook a fish. Like so many out of towners, Joe and his wife Erica fell in love with Athens for its small town feel, and big city amenities. A passionate and experienced chef, it was only a matter of time before Joe decided to bring his Miami flavors to Athens. It didn’t hurt that Joe’s specialty, seafood, had been absent from Athens for far too long. Maybe Square One’s success can be attributed to the filling of this void, but ask any restaurant goer, and they will tell you it’s the food! Serving up anything and everything under the sea, Square One includes a variety of fish, shrimp, oysters, crab, and so much more. An ever changing menu, much of Square One’s fresh food is dependent on what’s in season, so don’t be surprised to find blue crab one month, and octopus the next. With most appetizers under $10, and most entrees under $20, Square One serves an upscale menu at an affordable price. Better yet, come on Tuesdays and find a deal that can’t be beat. A complete meal for two, the Twos-day special provides an appetizer, two surf and turf dinners, a bottle of wine, and dessert, all for only $40! As an avid fan of their food, and deals in general, I often find myself at Square One on Tuesdays, either with my husband, or some girl friends. If you haven’t experienced Square One, do yourself a favor, and go!
