The Fish Market Restaurant Back in Business after Rooftop Fire
The Fish Market Restaurant, located at 750 North Harbor Drive on San Diego Bay, is reopening after a fire forced it to close down on May 27, 2015. There were no injuries resulting from the fire, which broke out during the busy dinner period. It will re-open Monday, August 3 for full service.
The restaurant sustained heavy fire and water damage and a plan to rebuild quickly took shape. It has been a popular dining spot for residents and visitors since opening in 1989 and The Fish Market’s owners set a goal to reopen as soon as it was safely possible.
“We made a commitment to re-build and re-open as quickly as possible and we are grateful to the Port of San Diego, the City of San Diego and the County of San Diego for their support and assistance throughout the process,” said Dwight Colton, Vice President of Operations for the company.
During the repair and rebuilding process, The Fish Market’s owners and management team saw an opportunity to refresh and update the restaurant. Enhancements include a new color palette, ceiling treatments, fabrics and wall coverings.
“We refreshed elements of the interior that we hope will be pleasing to our guests. In addition, our employees are very excited to be back in the building,” added Colton.
The waterfront restaurant is The Fish Market’s flagship property. The company has another location in the Del Mar/Solana Beach area and four more in the San Francisco Bay area. The two-story San Diego Bay property also includes the upscale Top of the Market restaurant on its top floor. The Top of the Market is still undergoing construction and will re-open in six-to-eight weeks.
Along with the reopening of The Fish Market, its sushi, oyster and cocktail bars, as well as the retail seafood market, are open and fully operational.
