Once upon a time… just kidding. The idea arose with two guys who love to catch and eat fish – Kevin loves to catch fish and Joe loves to eat fish ! They decided to partner up and bring Marquette something different when it comes to a food truck that fits in perfectly with our beautiful Lake Superior, Marquette’s small-town atmosphere with food that is fresh and local.
Kevin Bray went to school in the mid 90s in the culinary program at NMU – then went to CIA (Culinary Institute of America in New York). Chef spent 8 years at Northern Lakes Seafood, an upscale restaurant in the Detroit area before returning to Marquette in 2015. Cooking is one of his passions and fishing is the other and both come together in the FISH EXPRESS. Chef has created a menu of fresh local fish including Lake Trout and Whitefish and also uses the more traditional cod for a Fish-n-Chips option. His menu is simple and also incorporates a few non-fish items including a vegetarian option of a Portabello sandwich. Chef also prepares the fish in multiple ways for those who do not want fried fish, but may prefer baked or grilled. He will be introducing more items as he gets established and expects to offer something different each week as a special.
Joe Constance is a local entrepreneur who has owned a few local restaurants including Big Al’s, Amigos and currently Iron Bay Restaurant in downtown Marquette. Kevin says the only thing that has scared him so far is seeing Joe in the kitchen trying to cook so we have agreed that won’t happen again!
FISH EXPRESS will be open daily from 11:00 AM until 8:00 PM and is located at 1034 N. Third Street (Former Valle Supermarket) in Marquette. It is the first of expected 4 mobile vending options coming this summer and next spring with the opening of a mobile food park at the same location. Phone 906-362-3474.
