Santa Monica Restaurant Holding Seafood Festival

Dia del Pescador comes to Socalo August 4-7

By Dolores Quintana

Socalo Restaurant in Santa Monica is holding a special event, Dia del Pescador or Day of the Fisherman in Spanish, which their website describes as a “Festival, a SEAsonal celebration honoring our oceans with limited-time-only specials from August 4 – August 7, 2022!” 

Co-chef/owner Mary Sue Milliken described the event, via an emailed statement, “At Socalo we learned about a charming Mexican holiday honoring fishermen/women and it got us excited to feature the bounty of SoCal’s seafood.  Summer is my favorite time to eat seafood and our special Dia del Pescador menu, appetizer-sized, will allow for tastes of everything!” – 

Co-chef/owner Susan Feniger added, via an emailed statement, “All the cocktails have that beachy, coastal vibe and pair perfectly with a seafood-centric menu. As longtime sustainable seafood advocates, we wanted people to think about where their seafood comes from, honor the fishermen/women, and toast their hard work with a cocktail and mariachis!” 

This is the menu for Dia del Pescador:
