Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2009
ROCK'N FISH restaurant of Manhattan Beach will bring its unique coastal vision to downtown Los Angeles as it opens a second venue in the new L.A. LIVE complex.
Scheduled to open late February, the new 6,000-square-foot, 240-guest-capacity ROCK'N FISH will share the location with Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, Katsuya, Yard House, the Beverly Hills Farm and Rosa Mexicano. It sits within easy walking distance of the NOKIA Theatre, the Staples Center, Club Nokia, The Grammy Museum, The Ritz Carlton and the J.W. Marriot Resort.
Owner Michael Zislis says ROCK'N FISH was recruited along with the other eateries for a diverse and exciting mix of menus representing the best of Los Angeles.
"None of our restaurants compete with one another," said Zislis, describing ROCK'N FISH as the casual place people will go before or after a sports event or concert.
It's that relaxed ambience that has made ROCK'N FISH a favorite in Manhattan Beach for nearly nine years. Built on the site of the legendary Hibachi Restaurant, ROCK'N FISH carries on the tradition by serving some of the former eatery's signature dishes, sauces and cocktails.
Highlights of the seafood and steak house's menu include Kapalua rib-eye beef in a pineapple marinade with "Hibachi" teriyaki, hot and sweet New Orleans barbecue shrimp over sticky rice, and signature oak-grilled artichoke appetizer.
The new L.A. LIVE location builds on the Manhattan Beach favorites by adding an oyster bar and extending its wine list. Also unique to the ROCK'N FISH L.A. LIVE location is the largest and most sophisticated wine preservation system in Los Angeles (The Wine Station by Napa Technologies).
Other things will not change, says Zislis, founder of the Zislis Group and proprietor of the Mucho Ultima Mexicana restaurant, the luxury boutique Shade Hotel, and Zinc Lounge.
"We held on to the original décor and embellishments, but there is a more extravagant feel that coincides with the scale of L.A. LIVE," said Zislis. "When you visit, there will still be no doubt you're in a ROCK'N FISH."
