Fish Market Restaurants San Diego CA
It’s no surprise that a city bordered by ocean excels at serving seafood. San Diego’s seafood restaurants vary radically in ambiance, price and versatility, but all have one thing in common: high quality fish. Dishes are minimally-prepared in order to showcase the freshly-caught seafood that is flown in daily or reeled in by local artisanal fishermen. Grilled, sauteed, seared, smoked, or raw-whichever you choose will send tastebuds over the edge.
Don’t let an unassuming, casual vibe fool you. Some of San Diego’s best seafood restaurants double as markets and seat a post-beach clientele, but are also critically acclaimed. For example, the uber-informal Blue Water Grill was highlighted on the famous Food Network show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. On the other hand, upscale seafood restaurants such as Truluck's or Eddie V's, make perfect date nights with impeccable service and artistically-plated dishes. Specialty cocktails and award-winning wines pair seamlessly with your order. Craving oysters? Ask the staff, if you’re overwhelmed by the magnitude of varieties to choose from.
No time to dine-in? Hosting a party? Many of these restaurants, such as The Fishery, allow you to call in a to-go order. Their market also has an extensive catering menu including sushi platters, poached salmon and more to eliminate the need to cook for guests.
