Long Beach Fish Tale restaurant calling it quits
By: Pat Maio / Staff Writer
After a run of 36 years in Long Beach, the Fish Tale seafood restaurant will close Aug. 1.
â€œItâ€™s time to close. We found a great operator to take it over,â€ said co-owner Jerry Bloeser, who runs the popular fish tank-themed restaurant in East Long Beachâ€™s Los Altos neighborhood with his brother, John Bloeser.
Jerry, 71, and John, 74, also run a floor-covering business. The younger brother said in an interview that they had grown overburdened by managing all of their business interests at their ages.
“That’s very sad news. We’ve heard so many great things about this place. And this is our first time here,” said David Silviera, who was dining at the restaurant for the first time with his wife, Penny Silviera, on Friday.
“And this chowder is spectacular,” Penny Silviera said.
Brent Brakebill, owner of Long Beach Irish pub and restaurant E.J. Malloy’s, said he has signed a 10-year lease for the building with the Bloeser brothers, who own the building at 5506 E. Britton Drive.
