Although skeptical generally of sushi joints in Colorado ski resorts, we decided to give the newish "Hooked" a chance anyway. The ownership has figured out a formula to snag passersby: by pitching a really appealing nightly special deal on an outside blackboard. Combine that with a couple servers who welcomed the opportunity to explain in detail any questions we had about the menu. We chose the "date night" $59, 3-course dinner for two, which included a chowder, small salad or various 3-pc sushi rolls, followed by a brilliant whole red snapper preparation, & a small dessert. Other reviewers have also mentioned and lauded the chef's clever whole-fish entree prepared "two ways." And it really works! This chef/co-owner is on to something. Although there were several other "duo prep" options available for our red snapper, we committed to the chef's signature style: half the fish served shashimi style with a light, slightly tart soy-vinaigrette drizzle, and the other half deep-fried with a feathery, delicious green chimichurri garnish around the periphery of the plate. This presentation was better than beautiful. At least 10 hefty slices of super-fresh snapper sashimi graced one side of the plate, and the rest of the quick-fried snapper (head, tail, the works) curled itself around the other side of the plate. This makes for that sought-after crunchy exterior and delicate, tender fish meat on the inside. I appreciated that the server instructed us carefully and cheerfully to dig around, uncover and chow down on the sweet "fish cheeks" meat. Well, we finessed that job, leaving nary a shred of fish meat on the fanned out bones. What a treat to observe, admire and then enthusiastically rip into this luscious entree treat. And at that price, we will probably be back again during our 2-week vacation here in Beaver Creek. I certainly hope "Hooked" succeeds where others have not in this odd-shaped little restaurant space.
