Kingfisher marks 20th year

Restaurant rolls back prices and menu.

When most visitors think about dining out in Arizona, seafood isn't usually the first thing that pops to mind.

But residents know that you don't have to live near a body of water to enjoy delicious seafood.

Doing what it does best, Best Things Arizona counted down the top 10 seafood restaurants in the state and decided that two of those spots are in Tucson.

One is a longstanding favorite and the other is a newer spot owned by one of Tucson's favorite restaurateurs.

The first Tucson spot on the list is Kingfisher, located at 2564 East Grant Road.

Housed in an older building, the restaurant is known for its vintage interior, tasty cocktails and of course, seafood.

"Kingfisher’s menu is filled with American seafood favorites like New England clam chowder, grilled sea bass, and shrimp cakes," Best Things Arizona writes in the article. "The crowd favorite is the macadamia nut crusted Hawaiian fish dipped in lemongrass butter sauce."

Next up on the list is El Berraco, which was opened last year in a submarine-shaped building located at 2960 North 1st Avenue.

Despite it's relative newness to the Tucson restaurant scene, El Berraco is run by an old pro, as its owned by Benjamín Galaz, who also owns BK Carne Asada and Hot Dogs.

Serving up fresh flavors and plenty of variety, El Berraco specializes in seafood from Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico and more.

"One of their most popular dishes is the Mr. Faro made with tuna, scallops, salmon and topped with orange and pineapple sauce," according to Best Things Arizona. "You also won’t want to miss the grilled octopus served with salsa, cilantro and rice."
