It takes guts for a restaurant to offer only three entrees, two of which are whole fish; the third is a whole Jonah Crab. None of this is for the faint of heart. You do your own boning and picking. At Short & Main, a four-year-old spot in the center of Gloucester with 61 seats, the two whole fish are hyperlocal.
