Oceanside, California foodies and fish lovers are welcoming the new Hello Betty Fish House with open arms. Part of the chain of Denver, Colorado-based Sage Restaurant Group (SRG), the highly anticipated restaurant offers a high- vibe take on wining and dining. If you're planning a spring or summer escape to the seaside city or nearby San Diego be sure to put the restaurant on your must-do list.
The casual eatery offers a menu of Baja-inspired SoCal cuisine with choices such as Ahi Tuna Flautas, Oyster Tortas, and West Coast Seafood Boil with shrimp, clams, mussels, corn, potatoes, Andouille, chile, garlic beer broth, and toast. Seafood holds the spotlight here but carnivores can also sink their teeth in smoked pork belly arnitas of a loco moco burger and other choices.
No beachside restaurant survives without drinks and Hello Betty is offering plenty of tippling options at its 60-seat bar or on the patio. In addition to the usual beer and wine you can sip a Maverick's Squeeze with lemongrass infused American Harvest vodka, orange, lemon, and lime; and the Beach Break Therapy with Hangar 1 kaffir lime vodka, coconut rum, pineapple, lime, and Peychaud's bitters. There’s also the ever-popular margarita mixed in multiple iterations including the Offshore Spinner with Milagro Reposado, St. Germain, grapefruit, and lime.
