22nd St. Landing - San Pedro: last night

WLA | Jan 24, 2004 12:32 PM

Having driven by this restaurant on the way to Canetti's the last time we were in SP we made it our dinner stop this time. What a good idea that turned out to be. First of all it is east of Gaffey maybe 5 or so blocks on the right hand side of 22nd Street. It has its own free parking lot, (no valet...woo-hoo!) and when we walked in with no reservation at 7:30 P.M. we were seated immediately. It's a big place, with a casual family feel to it, but nice.

Started with one bloody mary for my wife and a lemon drop up for me. They brought a basket of long round syle focaccia bread, warm and excellent. The menu sounded great, mostly seafood, (including a large selection of seafood salads and pasta with seafood, plus ciappino, etc.), but with a pretty broad meat section for the non-seafood lovers too.

My wife had one of the two specials that night, a pecan encrusted salmon with garlic mashed and steamed veggies. I had the stuffed sole, (stuffed with a crab, shrimp, minced mushrooms and spinach mixture) with a baked potato and the same steamed veggies.

This is a throw back place in that they give you the complete dinner and a salad, (choice includes caesar or regular dinner salad) or New England Clam Chowder, (which I had and it was good but not great), or another soup choice which I am blanking on right at the moment. They also have a great looking appetizer array including a giant bucket of steamed clams and mussles which I saw a table near us splitting.

I had one more lemon drop up with dinner and we got out for $65, plus tip.

Service was friendly, efficient and competent. They have a large counter in front of the open kitchen were you can have dinner as well. This place is a keeper/winner and we will go back as often as we are in San Pedro.
