Best fresh fish in southern OC?

josephnl | Jun 6, 2009 04:59 PM

Where is the best place to buy fresh fish in the Newport/Irvine/Costa Mesa area? I have been buying most of my fish at Gelson's (Irvine), Bristol Farms (Newport), Santa Monica Seafood (Costa Mesa), or Whole Foods (the District/Tustin). If I am very careful (questioning as to when the fish came in, smelling the fish, examining the fish very carefully), I can usually, but not always, get decent fish. I wish I knew a good local fishmonger who carried super-fresh fish and whose recommendations I could dependably trust. Does this exist in this area? I have always previously lived in areas where there was a local fish store where I could get great fish. I have been unable to locate such in this area. Does it exist?
