Karina’s Restaurants Celebrates 41 Years Operating in San Diego County

| October 8, 2022 | 0 Comments

Karina’s restaurant celebrated 41 years of operation in San Diego on September 29.  Since Day One, Karina’s has served the best south-of-the-border seafood cuisine to America’s Finest City and its suburbs, and over this time has grown into one of the county’s most formidable restaurant groups, including Karina’s Mexican Seafood (Otay Ranch and Bonita), Karina’s Cantina (La Jolla and Gaslamp), Karina’s Ceviches & More (Mission Hills) and Karina’s Ceviche Bar ‘N Tacos (Barrio Logan).  

Now recognized as one of the premier Mexican dining destinations in the county, the first Karina’s Mexican Seafood was opened in 1981 by Don Arnulfo Contreras, who named the restaurant after his eldest daughter. A loyal clientele grew rapidly, declaring Karina’s the top choice for authentic Mexican seafood dishes, an expansive selection of unique made-to-order ceviches, Puerto Nuevo style lobster and coastal specialties from Sinaloa – birthplace of Contreras.

“We’re thankful for 41 years of serving our community and loyal fans, for our wonderful staff and loving family,” says David Contreras Curiel, Karina’s Group partner and son of founder Arnulfo Contreras. “It’s always a pleasure to share our authentic cuisine and welcoming hospitality with the San Diego area, and our family looks forward to maintaining our relationship with the community far into the future. We invite everyone to come celebrate with us on September 29th!”
