Founded in 1996, Bluewater Grill continues to spread its passion for the freshest sustainable seafood. What started as one restaurant in Newport Beach’s historic Cannery Village in 1996 has grown to six restaurants in California and Arizona including a just-opened showplace on San Diego’s Coronado Island and a seventh location planned for Temecula Wine Country this fall.
Despite the growth, the company maintains close working relationships with industry experts to ensure best-practice standards for sustainable fishing and harvesting.
So it’s no surprise that Bluewater’s annual tribute to sustainable seafood and shellfish returns this September as one of the most popular tasting and paring celebrations of the year.
The Sustainable Seafood Feast: How to Enjoy Seafood and Know your Menu Choices are Sustainable on Tuesday, Sept 9, will feature a sampling of seafood and shellfish that has been sustainably caught or farmed according to standards established by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program, the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach Seafood for the Future program or the Marine Stewardship Council.
The special menu allows guests to select three courses, including a raw shellfish or hot seafood starter, a choice of signature chowder or lobster bisque, and an entrée, plus all-you-can eat sourdough bread and butter. Valued at $60, the special $34.95 menu includes a chosen tasting of Acrobat wines from Oregon, voted the best wine to pair with seafood and oysters.
