  1. I'd say Kaito Sushi in Encinitas, but I don't think that's what you're asking and I don't want to steal cgfan's thunder. :)

      ...but it's worth noting that Sushi at any of San Diego's seafood houses is a joke.

      For Sushi go to a Sushi bar. (...and for this I'd suggest Kaito...)

      For seafood go to a seafood house. (...and for this I'd suggest Oceanaire...)

      Never should their respective specialties be confused with each other, though it often happens on these boards.

        To a marine biologist (like me), there's no functional difference between sushi and seafood (except that one is a subset of the latter): they both result in organisms harvested from the marine environment.

          :-)

          ...was just referring to their colloquial use in my post, but point noted.

    2. What price point are you looking for? Here are some alternatives:

      Inexpensive and casual: Point Loma Seafoods.

      Upscale and expensive: Oceanaire Seafood Room.

      In the middle: The Fishery

        I'll also add: Blue Water Market and Grill (inexspensive and casual)

        If you have access to a kitchen - Catalina Offshore Products

        Don't miss the Uni man at the Little Italy Farmer's Market on Saturdays.

        I guess we should add Searocket Bistro to this list as well (middle)
