The newest branch of the illustrious Mexican restaurant opened quietly in Echo Park this spring.
It was just a few weeks ago that a sign even appeared above the building at the former Pescado Mojado on Sunset Boulevard.
Meantime, the conversion to bar and restauraunt in the back area that used to be Santa Fe tortilleria has hardly begun.
It will take some time according to co-owner Enrique Martinez.
We caught up with Martinez Friday night at East LA Meets Napa 2012.
Organized by healthcare provider AltaMed, the event showcases fine Mexican cuisine and Latino-owned vineyards.
Eric Garcetti, Luis Lopez and Arturo Chavez were three of the local politicians we saw in the crowd.
Martinez encouraged us to stop by the Senor Fish booth, where pork sopes were center stage.
See a photo in the gallery above.
Senor Fish was in fine company with Sunland's Rocio's, Whittier's Bizarra Capital and Hollywood's Loteria Grill just a few of the many.
AltaMed has also just published a new book In Their Own Words, highlighting Southern California restaurant families and chefs.
