Cape Seafood and Provisions Opens on Fairfax

Chef Michael Cimarusti, founder of Los Angeles favorites Connie and Ted’s and Providence recently told the Los Angeles Times, “Cheap fish is never good and good fish is never cheap.” He’s right. His latest venture, Cape Seafood and Provisions, has opened its doors on Fairfax and Melrose. An expert fishmonger, Cimarusti created the fish shop in order to, “bring the ingredients that we use at Connie & Ted’s and Providence” to the public.


The long-awaited store front offers an exceptional variety of wild caught finfish and shellfish from environmentally responsible and sustainable sources. Oysters, clams, smoked fish, and caviar. But fear not, those not so seafood inclined, the shop also has an expert selection of USDA prime steaks and chops from Nickoloff’s butchers at West Coast Prime Meats.


And they don’t stop there. Also on hand are the “provisions” in the title: high quality, gourmet, and artisanal pantry items like vinegars, oils, pasta, herbs and spices, spice mixes, bread crumbs, hook-and-line caught canned tuna, anchovies, sardines, beans, lentils, rice, butter, sea salt, prepared sauces, soups, and salads to help you create a delicious meal at home.


The shop will be using the Monterey Bay Aquarium buying guide so that customers can be always be confident they’ll be purchasing the finest and safest seafood that is caught or farmed in ways that cause little harm to habitats or other wildlife.


Truly a one stop shop of carefully curated and sustainable items for food lovers of any stripe. Welcome to the neighborhood!
