Pacific Catch Restaurant Review

: Pacific Catch’s narrow, cheerfully decorated space barely has room for the postage-stamp-size kitchen facing the dining counter. Still, the easygoing banter of the cooks sets a casual, friendly tone. The six tightly-packed tables near the window might be the only seating where the charming bustle of the lunch and dinner rush may switch from intimate to claustrophobic. (On sunny days, grab one of the two sidewalk tables.) The fish-centered menu (with chicken and tofu offered as substitutions) spans tastes, textures and cuisines: Japanese rice bowls are loaded with vegetables and topped with either a saké-teriyaki or soy-wasabi sauce. Meal-size salads include an option with Asian-style ingredients paired with sushi-grade tuna, and a Mexican-inspired chipotle-glazed mahi mahi with a tomatillo-avocado dressing. Five types of fish taco include the traditional Baja style with jalapeño cream and shredded cabbage. Hot sandwiches arrive on grilled fresh-baked bread. Traditionalists will go for the fish ‘n’ chips served with sweet potato fries. Other locations.
