About Fish Public: Restaurant visionary Tracy Borkum manifests a quaint 3,500-square-foot seafood eatery in San Diego’s charming Kensington neighborhood with Fish Public, which opened doors in June 2013. Fish offers quality sea fare at accessible price points and draws culinary inspiration from the Atlantic’s Gulf Coast, New England and English Coast as well as West Coast of America, Baja and Pacific Rim regions. Unique offerings include an artisan retail area and a custom chef’s oyster counter with peek-a-boo views into the kitchen. The interior design, spearheaded by Borkum herself, is reminiscent of a Nantucket-inspired beach cottage with a light and airy appeal. Focal details include whitewashed wood accents and unexpected lighting fixtures fashioned from old fishing nets. Fish Public’s beverage program is comprised of draft craft beers, an international wine selection and an eclectic cocktail menu with all mixers, syrups and infusions made in-house.

Fish Public is located at 4055 Adams Avenue and is open Sunday from 5-9pm, Tuesday through Thursday from 5-9pm, and Friday through Saturday from 5-10pm. Happy Hour is Tuesday-Sunday from 5-6:30pm. For more information please visit or check or call 619.281.4014. For updates visit Fish Public on Facebook at www.facebook.comm/fish.public or Twitter at @fishpublic.
