Best Fish Market - 2009
Bear Flag Fish Co.
This trendy market in Newport Beach's Balboa Peninsula offers a wide array of fresh fish—everything from yellowtail, mahi mahi and opah to thresher shark, ling cod and catfish—as well as a healthy assortment of shellfish. It's also a great place for a seafood lunch, especially if you're in the mood for ceviche or a trio of fish tacos. There are a few picnic tables on the sidewalk and some small tables inside for dining.
