I'm making a road trip with an occasional pescatarian and I've gotta have something wonderful in my back pocket to fish out (rim shot)
Unfortunately, my central coast endeavors are limited pretty much to Jocko's (Nipomo), Big Sky (San Luis Obispo) the occasional lame Solvang smorgaasbord or aebelskiever, and the Madonna Inn coffee shop (just for the kitsch and whimsy).
I know of the clam chowder at Splash in Pismo. Really tasty, and much better than Brad's.
Surely some of you may have some advice for local, fresh seafood within these regions? (or even slightly further afield.... Cambria, Big Sur, or ....?)
