Zagat Review

"Incredibly wonderful seafood. Order all your fresh and frozen fish from them. Known for their cocktail shrimp. It does not get better than this. This is definitely the place to go when you are entertaining and want the very best.” -Susan Monday, Zagat

(Almost) Still Life of the Sea – Sponges and Anemones

Today we're going to take a little break from our normal routine of talking about delicious seafood. Instead, we'll
give you a quick lesson on some of the creatures from the deep that won't be finding their way to your plate any time soon. Actually, they won't be finding their way anywhere, as they're all but immobile. Of course, we're talking about Sea Sponges and Sea Anemones. We'll start out by introducing you to the sponge.

Contrary to what a certain cartoon which shall remain nameless may have led you to believe, sponges do not work at undersea fast food restaurants, nor do they live in pineapples. That's pretty obvious. What may not be as obvious is the fact that a sponge is an animal and not a plant. They are an animal with a very unique anatomy and live very sedentary lives.
