Anchors fish and seafood grill joins Saratoga restaurant row – Marin Independent Journal
Two years after opening a second location in San Jose, Anchors Fish & Chips and Seafood Grill anchored in Saratoga, just in time for clam chowder time.
The smooth opening phase began today, November 1. This is the first time that fish and chips have arrived at Big Basin Way, according to the Saratoga Chamber of Commerce.
However, Anchors, owned by South Bay restaurant veterans Nestor and Carlos Zubizarreta and Mario Ariza, has a menu that runs the gamut. In addition to fish & chips (halibut is a customer favorite), Chef Mario’s menu offers lobster rolls, seafood salads, oysters, teriyaki salmon rice bowls, linguine with clams or scallops and grilled fish dishes. An extensive wine list is in preparation.
The concept was launched with a stand at the San Pedro Square Market in downtown San Jose before expanding to a full brick and mortar location on Meridian Avenue that features both seating at the interior and on a patio.
In Saratoga, Anchors seized a space that had seen a succession of Italian restaurants: Ristorante Da Mario, Mio Vicino and, more recently, Sole Mio.
Details: Open daily 11 am-9pm at 14441 Big Basin Way, Saratoga; www.anchorsgrill.com
