Following an extensive search, Top of the Market has hired Michael McDonald as its new Executive Chef.  Originally from Los Angeles, Chef McDonald served as executive chef for Dakota and 25 degrees at the famed Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and most recently at the acclaimed Brix@1601 in Hermosa Beach.

From its downtown waterfront location which provides spectacular views of San Diego Bay and Coronado Island, Top of the Market is the upscale second story restaurant above The Fish Market restaurant.  The convenience of The Fish Market's bustling retail seafood market downstairs allows Chef McDonald to select, on a daily basis, the absolute freshest fish for his evolving seasonal menu.  He has revamped the menu since coming on board, adding some creative L.A. flair to Top of the Market's classic fresh seafood cuisine. 

"I am enjoying living in San Diego and having the opportunity to work with such wonderful fresh product and for such a long-standing restaurant institution," said Chef McDonald.  "Plus, I love the genuine friendliness of the San Diego community."
