No one seems to care about flounder anymore. I remember when I was growing up broiled flounder was respected and offered at nearly every continental type restaurant now it seems that it has no cache, sadly. I have eaten many varieties of fish, some rarefied, some not and I have come to the conclusion that flounder is one of the finest eating fish know to the 7 seas. I like its mild taste, broiled with a bit of butter and a squeeze of lemon, flecked with some fresh chervil: simply heavenly! Perhaps it's just a fluke that my favorite fish is relatively inexpensive, and maybe it's actually due to its lower price compared to things like tuna and sea bass that no one cares to talk about flounder anymore; as it's seen as a pedestrian's pescatarian meal. So be it! As long as the local mongers manage to move it, I will have my flounder and eat it too.
