Checked out the new location of Nico’s Pier 38, and this place definitely has a “wow” appeal! Love the overall look inside and the pier outside.
Inside, I love that “boat” suspended from the ceiling. Like the inclusion of different types of tiles through out the restaurant and the adjoining Fish Market. The best element I love? Those filament-based lights! Gives a throwback feel to fishing villages.
Outside is a nice area to take a short stroll. Look at the docked boats, the fish and crabs near the rocks, and the different trees planted along the paved walkway.
The only thing that troubled me? The food. I was a somewhat surprised at how few seafood dishes were on the menu. Chicken katsu, beef stew, orange chicken?? Weird. I know these are local kine staples, but from the name and locale, I’m overwhelmingly expecting seafood. There are a few seafood dishes on the menu, just not as much as I’d expect. But the food is good and was prepared quickly. I’m hoping the food selection surpasses the great look of Nico’s.
