BIZNOTE: Yes, Sunfish Seafood on Alki WILL reopen

So many have asked – via email, text, even in the WSB Community Forums – and now we have an answer: Yes, Sunfish Seafood – the fish-and-chips-and-more restaurant at 2800 Alki SW – WILL reopen. While Sunfish fans are used to its annual vacation closure, for example, this shutdown has been longer, so many were worried. In a brief conversation today, the restaurant’s owner, Michael Vassiliou, told us that while it’s been a tough year, keeping track of all the changing business requirements (among other things), he does hope to reopen Sunfish within a few weeks.

    Great news!  Can’t wait to see the guys and get some outstanding clam chowder along with their delicious fish and chips!  They’re a WS treasure and I hope they’ll be around forever.

    I agree with the other comments. Best fish and chips in town! A take out window would be great. So many restaurants haven’t survived during the year long Covid shut down, so glad Sunfish is returning!

    Great seafood served up with a classic dose of Greek attitude.  A true Alki Classic.
