One of Los Angeles’s best Mexican restaurants is expanding its local footprint, as Coni’Seafood looks to open up in the quiet Del Rey neighborhood this weekend. Owner Connie Cossio is set to jump this latest expansion into the address that once belonged to Mariscos Chente, a restaurant micro-chain first started by her father Vicente Cossio.
If Mariscos Chente first brought Nayarit-style seafood to the citywide conversation, it is Coni’Seafood that has solidified its legacy. Cossio has turned the quiet Inglewood restaurant into a destination unto itself, with busy lunch and dinner crowds and lots of chefs and regulars Instagramming that famous pescado zarandeado. Now it’s jumping into new waters, and a whole new Westside clientele.
Cossio’s daughter Bianka Córdoba will reportedly be taking over the day-to-day operation of this new location, which looks to be roughly the same size as the Inglewood original but with less patio seating. There is a built-in bar in the back though, offering beer and wine to start and full liquor down the line. As for food, Cossio tells Eater that the menu will be the same as the Inglewood original.
Expect an opening on Friday for Coni’Seafood in Del Rey, with daily hours to follow from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
