There’s a new seafood restaurant opening today in Fremont: it’s called Local Tide, and it’s the latest tenant to open in the new Cedar Speedster building on N. 36th St.
Victor Steinbrueck is behind Local Tide, his first brick-and-mortar space since operating a pop-up in the Pike Place Market Atrium. While he’d initially envisioned to open a permanent location at Pike Place, he found out about the open space in the Cedar Speedster building from his friend Jack Lamb, owner of Aslan Brewing. Aslan doesn’t offer food, so they built out the space to have a connecting window into Aslan where brewery customers can order food.
“We want to provide an opportunity to educate our customers on sustainable practices of sourcing seafood in the region, the variety of local species outside of the staples (salmon, halibut, and crab), and reframe the conversation around fish as an everyday option,” Steinbrueck said in a statement about the opening.
“We aim to shed light on the nuances of the process and highlight those companies doing it right. At the end of the day, we want to serve good tasting quality food that makes people want to come back and bring their friends!”
Heliotrope Architects designed Local Tide’s 1,000-square-foot space, which features a long bar-top and several tables for dining in.
The menu is heavy on seafood sandwiches with options such as dungeness crab, salmon, rockfish, or fried sole.
Local Tide’s hours are noon to 7pm daily; their address is 401 N 36th Street.
