About the company
Mitch’s on El Paseo is a concept developed by long-time restaurateur, Mitch Epstein, who brings his 31 years in the restaurant business to team up with respected sushi master and chef, James Holder – who was raised in Japan as the son of an American serviceman and a Japanese mother, and remembers learning to ‘cut fish’ (as he calls it) when he was 13, in his village of Hiyama.
Mitch’s on El Paseo Prime Seafood is open seven days a week from 11:30 am to 11 pm, serving Lunch and Dinner, as well as daily Happy Hour specials including a range of menu items such as sashimi, sliders, featured wines & sake, martinis and other cocktails.
The location of Mitch’s, the former Augusta Restaurant at the corner of Portola and El Paseo on the East end of the famed avenue, sets an exquisite dining scene with a multitude of windows showcasing the spectacular mountain views and an expansive lawn and lush landscaping in the back of the restaurant. Accommodating 275 people on upper and lower levels as well as picturesque patios, Mitch’s also has two distinctive bars with flat screen TVs, eye-catching wall art and fire pits.
