I never tried Blue Fish
in Santa Ana, but I knew of its existence. Recently, I noticed it ceased to exist. The storefront it formerly occupied has been stripped bare. Inside, there was nothing left but some semblance of what used to be a sushi bar.
No doubt the competition was tough against Kaisen
, which still draws daily crowds just a block down. Or even San Kai
across the street. To be quite honest, about the only thought I gave to Blue Fish
was that its name sounded a lot like Bluefin
-- one of the most popular sushi joints in O.C. Blue Fish
, it seems, was on the wrong end of that spectrum.
