The Newport Beach area isn’t lacking in fish joints, but Chowhound lil mikey has found another spot that seafood-lovers should put in rotation: the seafood-market-slash-casual-restaurant Bear Flag Fish Co. The smoked salmon—served in small pieces for easy eating—is fantastic. And at another Bear Flag branch just up the Pacific Coast Highway, Local encountered delicious fish tacos (pictured), poke, and ceviche, made even tastier with lime and one of the many hot sauce options drizzled on top.
