Fish 101 - Encinitas, California
FOOD: Simple seafood done very well. At this price point, I'm often disappointed when having seafood out because restaurants tend to overcook or overseason it, but they clearly know their specialty. Flavors are delicious but don't overwhelm the perfectly cooked delicate protein.
Thoughtful and reasonably priced selection of beer and wine to enjoy with your meal.
AMBIENCE: Decor is clean, minimal and casual. Picnic benches out on the patio give a fun, communal feeling to the dining experience.

SERVICE: You seat yourself and order at the counter. Friendly, smiling staff bring your food to your table and are good about bussing your empty dishes. The system was a little awkward for us because it was our first time there, but you could tell it was easy and old hat for the regulars.
|Izz never met a French Fry she doesn't like. :P|
This is a small space that filled up quickly on the Friday evening we were there around 5 pm. Since I tend to like a quieter dining experience, I'll show up around opening (4 pm) next time. And there will definitely be a next time. :)
Oh, and $1 oysters during their 4 pm to 6 pm Happy Hour - another reason to show up early!
