Blue Point Coastal Cuisine: San Diego, California
For 13 years, Blue Point Coastal Cuisine has been standing proud and tall among the busy streets of Fifth Avenue. Most of the seafood dishes served are seasonal; the Seafood Festival during summer, the Oyster Festival in April and the Copper River Salmon Festival in June.
There are 3 varieties of oysters served in a week; Malpac, Fanny Bay and the New Zealander. Shrimp and lobster pot stickers are served with 5 half-moon dumplings with pickled ginger, cucumbers and a pool of lemongrass glaze.
