Alaskan Halibut at RM Seafood

One of Rick Moonen’s spectacular dishes is this fish, line-caught from Alaska and lightly roasted with butter and topped with fresh-squeezed lemon juice. It is served with a carrot-cardamom purée, celery root and shaved heirloom carrots—all seasonal ingredients that give this dish an autumn flavor. $33, Mandalay Place, 632-9300.
