Ceviche House: Fresh Seafood in North Park
Chef Juan Carlos Recamier, originally from Queretaro, Mexico by way of Milan, Italy, eventually moved to San Diego where he encountered not only the love of his life, but also the dream of a lifetime.
On a visit to the coast of Oaxaca, where his brother Antonio works with indigenous communities, he was introduced to many local fishermen and cooks and soon dove head first into permaculture and seafood preparation. Upon returning to San Diego, his Ceviche House offerings became standard fare at local farmers’ markets where, by coincidence, he met his wife Viviana, who was also involved with the sustainable food movement.
Juan Carlos and Viviana have since moved on to a small and wildly successful location in North Park. A word of warning from Chef Juan Carlos: “When the fish goes, we close.”
