A Tour of Downtown L.A.'s Premier Fish Market With Chef Sal Marino (VIDEO)
fishing with chef Sal Marino
Chef Sal Marino (Il Grano, La Bottega Marino) likes to get up early. Which is a good thing, since most of the chefs who trek downtown to International Marine Products routinely get there around 5 a.m. to pick and choose among the pristine fresh fish that comes in daily to the downtown market and wholesale supplier.
As IMP isn't open to the public, the chef recently gave us a tour. A very early morning tour. Turn the page.
