From Our Editors

Big-time food critics don?t usually write about fast-casual joints, saving their words instead for Michelin-starred spots with white tablecloths. But they've made a telling exception for Se?or Fish, a Mexican-seafood outfit launched by siblings Enrique and Alicia Ramirez in 1988. Soon after the restaurant opened, writers from publications such as the Los Angeles Times began to praise the Ramirez's fish tacos, which were inspired by those sold along the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Crowds began flocking to Se?or Fish's tiny Highland Park kiosk, hungering for the ocean-fresh fish and handmade tortillas they?d read about in the papers.

Three decades later, diners are still flocking to Se?or Fish, which has evolved into five popular locations throughout LA. Enrique and Alicia remain deeply involved in the restaurants' daily operations. We talked with Enrique about the highlights of his iconic eatery.

On Finding Fame: ?[In 1988], a top reviewer from the Los Angeles Times reviewed us. Once we got that review, tons of people started reviewing us?Molly O'Neill, a food critic in New York City, did a story on us on the front page of the food section in The New York Times. Afterwards, when people were on vacation [from New York] and came to eat, they?d mention it.?

On the Scallop Taco: "Not too many people have ever had a scallop in a taco. It?s kind of a novelty. We use 10-20 scallops, which means there are 10-20 per pound, so it?s kind of jumbo scallop. And all of our seafood is wild?free-range from the ocean?as opposed to farmed."

On Guadalajara-Style Carnitas: "Our carnitas are traditional to Guadalajara, where our family is from. We make it every day and use good-quality, expensive protein."

Los Angeles Guide

There are so many different things to do in Los Angeles, and no Los Angeles guide can possibly cover everything that people can enjoy in this bustling metropolis. Fans of everything from discount shopping to visiting celebrity-hosted venues can find plenty of choices for entertainment and leisure in Los Angeles and its surrounding areas.

Visiting Universal Studios Hollywood is a quintessential must-do for cinema fans, and those who prefer seeing how movies are made can head for ArcLight Cinemas. This theater allows patrons to pre-select their seating arrangements, and it offers parking, which makes visiting this cinema convenient for customers who drive to the busy downtown area to experience this theater.

For viewing the stars in the sky, Griffith Observatory is the place to look and learn. It offers a planetarium show and sweeping views of the Los Angeles skyline that are breathtaking during the day and at night. This Observatory is also of interest to cinema fans, as it is often used as a filming location.

Rodeo Drive in nearby Beverly Hills is one of the world's greatest shopping attractions, but shoppers who are searching for deals in Los Angeles visit the Citadel Outlets to find all sorts of items at reduced prices. This outlet mall offers designer merchandise, and it is located in a historical building that was built in 1929. The building features an Assyrian wall as its facade. This Assyrian wall and the history of the building would be enough to warrant its mention in any Los Angeles guide.

Los Angeles also has a wide selection of museums that includes everything from two world-class art museums to Jewish history museums and car museums. Also, Los Angeles has plenty of concert venues, which attract individuals who enjoy hosting leisure, cultural and recreational activities in the Los Angeles area.
