Fresh Fish Swims Into El Segundo : California Fish Grill

Just a couple weeks ago, California Fish Grill opened their second South Bay restaurant.  Located in Plaza El Segundo, they offer casual dining with an emphasis on fresh seafood. Their menu offers plates and combos with several types of fish to choose from in addition to shrimp and calamari.

I stopped by to grab carry-out for lunch just a few days after they opened and the place was buzzing with customers.  My order — two fish tacos with rice and beans — was taken and filled quickly.  While I waited, I checked out the pleasant decor in the dining room and silently wished I had time to chill on their patio.

Back in the office, I dug into the tasty Cajun grilled mahi tacos.  The fish was tender with good seasoning and evenly balanced with toppings.  I hate it when the fish in a fish taco is lacking or dry; these tacos passed that test easily.  Too much cabbage can also be a turn off but the amount was just right.

With California Fish Grill in El Segundo, I’m glad to have a location close to work and home.  But I’m wondering: Will the fresh fish market in El Segundo be over served?  Downtown has the rustic and time tested El Segundo Fish Company, and Malibu Fish Grill is coming soon to the Sepulveda and Grand intersection.

With all the offerings that California Fish Grill has — the tacos only scratch the surface — I’m sure they will do just fine.
