John is a 20-year veteran in the seafood industry, having worked at the famed Pike Place Market in Seattle and Fishworks in London.
“We love our fresh seafood, so we wanted to bring everything about the experience to the folks in our new neighborhood,” said Angie. “We saw a gap and a huge opportunity in the community to serve fresh, affordable seafood. To our surprise, much of this area’s seafood is delivered frozen from out-of-state — and for a pretty penny. That model just doesn’t make sense to us. Our locals deserve fresh, delicious fare, and that’s what we deliver.”
The duo — along with partner chef Bryan Hickey — believe in the power of simple recipes to highlight the freshness of the fish, and are eager to share their expertise in the realm of seafood by offering guests the freshest catches at affordable prices.
“We want our customers to see, feel, smell and experience what they are eating,” said Angie. “We are also enjoying the opportunity to educate customers on seafood, whether that be from food we’ve prepared for them or fresh fillets they can take home and cook themselves.”
