Fish & Chips -- Not Atlantic Cod

Does anybody know where to find a great plate of fish&chips that are made from something other than Atlantic cod? Pacific cod, seabass, or Pacific halibut would be great.

  1. They serve a pretty good fish and chips at the Smokehouse in Burbank, and the fish is halibut.

    1. Malibu Seafood or Hungry Cat

      1. 26 Beach Restaurant uses Dover Sole.

        1. Very good Beer Battered Halibut at

          Bluewater Grill
          665 North Harbor Drive
          Redondo Beach, CA 90277
          (310) 318-3474

          1. Brit's in Pasadena uses Icelandic Cod. I don't know if that's the same as Atlantic Cod.

              As Iceland is in the Atlantic, I would expect their cod to be Atlantic. Just a guess, mind you...

                True. But if the issue is depletion of stock, then it appears that the supplies of cod swimming around near Iceland are better than those farther south in the Atlantic.

                  Wow ... I'm happy that someone else cares about seafood depletion. I go to the Monterey Aquarium's Seafood Watch website frequently to find out what not to choose on a menu. And I prefer restaurants that care as well.
