How Eleven Brothers Made El Pescador a Thriving Set of Family Restaurants

After five presidents and three recessions, El Pescador seafood restaurants are more popular than ever. Read my new essay on immigrant hustle, family lineage, and the multiple dazzling skills of restaurateurs in southeast LA. Gracias!

  1. Hello, what a wonderful article. However, I noticed a small error. You mentioned the name Ezquiel Ortiz, but the correct name is Eliazer Ortiz.

  2. Hello Vickie!

    My name is Andrea Ortiz and I want to thank you for writing such a beautiful piece on my family. Your essay brought back so many memories of my grandparents Isidra and Carlos Ortiz. I will treasure this forever.

    Gracias and God Bless,
