The Oceanaire

Two weekends ago, my hubby and I met up with some college friends in San Diego. Since they are out of towners and wanted seafood, I suggested we try Ocenaire. I've always wanted to check out how Top Chef contestant Brian Malarkey prepares the seafood.

The restaurant was crowded, yet had a cozy rustic charm about it. They seated us right away which was nice since we didn't make any reservations.

We started off with Oysters Rockefeller and Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes. The crab cakes were awesome and had real crab. They didn't have that smelly seafood taste either and tasted fresh.

For our entree, my hubby and I shared the swordfish glazed with a red wine reduction and sprinkled with almonds. Delish!

I forget what our friends ordered, but we did share some great sides of sauteed mushrooms and haricot verts (aka green beans).

Our lovely swordfish dish:
