The Hermosa Beach Fish Shop on Pier Avenue closed its doors on Saturday.
In a statement, part-owner and KTLA Meteorologist Vera Jimenez said simply after more than five years in business that the time had come to close shop.
“We have been blessed to meet so many people in the community that we may never have met without the restaurant,” said Jimenez in a statement. “We want to thank all of our customers, employees, suppliers and friends for helping make this a great run.”
No specific reason was given why the owners decided to close.
The restaurant, on upper Pier Avenue in the Vons shopping plaza, opened in 2014. Its walk-up counter and wide variety of fresh fish that could be made into a taco, a platter or salad made the restaurant a favorite of locals for a quick, but quality lunch or dinner.
Jimenez said their recipes can still be found at their partner's locations in Pacific Beach, Encinitas and Point Loma.
