Occasionally one walks into a restaurant and after viewing the ambiance and menu thinks "why did it take me so long to come here?" This is exactly what this Writer thought after experiencing the 22nd St. Landing Seafood Grill & Bar in San Pedro.
Actually the 22nd St. Landing is celebrating a 25th anniversary this year. It is no secret why this restaurant has been a magnet for customers for so many years. The dining room, on the second floor, shows a fine view of the Yacht Marina in San Pedro. The menu is large and the selection of seafoods wondrous.
We were there for lunch and opened with fried calamari and herb seared rare ahi. Then followed with the California Seafood Cioppino and grilled scallops.
This was too much food but Chef Roberto Flores wanted us to taste some of the favorites that have achieved fame for the restaurant. Chef Flores has been at the 22nd St. Landing for sixteen years.
For those not wanting seafood there is a selection of Angus beef steaks as well as chicken and a long list of pastas. The fresh hot breadsticks were excellent.
There is also an excellent dessert menu but alas after all our "tasting" we had to mournfully decline.
22nd St. Landing is located at 141 22nd Street in San Pedro with ample free off street parking.
