Main Catch in Commack: First bites
Main Catch casts a drift net, taking in seafood, sushi and steak. It's a trio that has broad appeal.
And this new eatery, from the crew behind the very casual Southside Fish and Clam in Lindenhurst, does pretty well, upscaling the style and the substance.
Inside, it's a combo of the streamlined and the kitschy. Main Catch also sports a sushi bar and an oyster bar.
Good choices include the generous shrimp cocktail and grilled swordfish finished with a lemony beurre blanc, with amaretto-spiked cheesecake for dessert. Colorful sushi rolls are carefully prepared, too. Main courses generally are in the mid-$20s; sushi rolls reach the mid-teens.
