El Fish Marisqueria is the latest venture from Chef/Owner Julian Medina and Restaurateur Louis Skibar, both of Toloache Restaurant Group. Chef Medina embarked on a culinary exploration to Mexico’s fishing capital, Ensenada, to seek inspiration for the menu. He visited fish and farmers’ markets, discovering ways to evolve new and traditional dishes from the region.
