Los Angeles is a metropolis on the ocean with restaurants serving up some to the best catch in the nation. So, where can residents and visitors find the best fish sandwiches to fill up with? Here are two great fish sandwich options to order by those who want to patronize, dine, and spend some dimes.

1. Salmon Sandwich at FishGrill Pico

Is there any doubt that this restaurant delivers food from the sea when fish is in its name?

On Pico Boulevard between Beverly Hills and Beverlywood, California there is a restaurant named FishGrill Pico which serves a delectable salmon sandwich that would make any pescatarian or seafood lover happy.

FishGrill is a kosher restaurant, so by eating from this kitchen a vegan or lactose intolerant customer is sure to be treated to a meal that is not only without dairy but the food has not even been prepared anywhere near dairy products.

The salmon sandwich is prepared on a grill giving it its crisp flavor then stuffed between a toasted bun with lettuce, pickles, onions, tomato and the restaurant’s signature special sauce which has a sweet tangy taste. The kitchen offers a choice of sides including coleslaw, green salad, Israeli salad, rice pilaf, brown rice, a baked potato, and French fries.

If a salmon sandwich is not what is on the mind there are plenty of other options to dig into such as red snapper, white fish, red trout, tilapia, sea bass, ahi, and trout. Not to mention the many ways FishGrill prepares the fish: mesquite grilled plates, tacos, pasta, salad, wraps, and the crowd favorite of fish and chips.

The nautical theme is especially befitting of this fish spot. From wooden hardwood tables to elements of a ship’s interior and the words “Captain’s Quarters” on the restroom door, the place is sure to attract customers who are looking forward to a family-oriented experience with good grub.

With three Los Angeles County locations, FishGrill can be found on Pico Boulevard, Beverly Boulevard, and on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Price: $15 for the salmon sandwich with a choice of two sides.
