EMC’s pasta in an uni cream sauce, garnished with dried seaweed and fish roe.
Fresh seafood—from marinated monkfish liver with ponzu to charred abalone to everything in between—is on the menu at the new EMC Seafood & Raw Bar at Santana Row. EMC, the letters of which are the first initials of the three investors, was first established in Koreatown in Los Angeles in 2013. It has since grown to six locations. The Santana Row spot marks the first Northern California establishment by the M2K Group, which has operated numerous other successful restaurants in Southern California over the years.
Indulge in craft cocktails and a variety of sakes alongside lobster garlic noodles; uni pasta with fish roe; grilled fish tacos; and sushi, including the Santana Roll that’s chock-full of baked lobster, langostino, crabmeat, avocado and spicy mayo.
Can’t decide? Then, opt for the All-In-Special ($118), a bounty of whole Maine lobster, whole crab, shrimp, Manila clams, mussels, corn on the cob and potatoes, with Cajun garlic sauce to spice it all up.
