This year marks our 18thOceanic Dinner event.  Despite the general news about the oceans— global warming, overfishing, increased acidity, and pollution—our excellent fishmonger, Tom Worthington, of Monterey Fish Market—tells us that the supply and variety of sustainable fish is very good this year.

This can only e so because of the practices of Tom and Monterey Fish owner (since 1979) Paul Johnson, who source fish from well-regulated fisheries, from boats that fish sustainably, in season, and cleaning the catch immediately and handling them gently.

Chef Brian’s work from Tom’s list of available sea foods has produced this year’s menu—a creatively and well-thought-out mix of the fish and shellfish that excited him most.
