Mexican Seafood Chain La Corriente Cocina Del Pacifico Unveils First U.S. Restaurant In San Diego

April 2, 2024

A Mexico-based seafood chain with several locations south of the border, La Corriente Cocina del Pacifico has unveiled its first U.S. restaurant in San Diego.

Originally launched in 2014 in Tijuana as La Corriente Cevichería + Nais, the upscale mariscos concept now has branches in Mexicali, Monterrey, Mazatlan and Mexico City. Last year, Grupo La Correiente took over the quaint space on Pearl Street in La Jolla that previously housed Las Morelianas for three years for the opening of the company's first United States restaurant.

La Corriente Cocina del Pacifico offers an elegant ambiance within its 50-seat restaurant, complimented by a menu featuring an array of Mexican seafood dishes. Dishes will include ceviches, aguachiles, tacos, fried seafood, oysters, and much more, as well as Mexican-inspired Bloody Marys and micheladas.

La Corriente Cocina del Pacifico is now open at 456 Pearl Street in the heart of San Diego's La Jolla. For more information, visit
