Casa Valencia Seafood Bar & Grill is opening its second location in the former Yoshimatsu Healthy Japanese Eatery at 2660 N. Campbell Ave.

According to Casa Valencia manager Julio Garcia, the restaurant will open by August 2016.

Though you won’t find sushi at Casa Valencia, Mexican seafood, also known as mariscos, is available aplenty. They also offer grilled meat entrees, skewers, fajitas, and tacos.

Similar to one of Tucson’s more popular mariscos establishments, Mariscos Chihuahua, Casa Valencia also offers items not typically found in traditional mariscos restaurants, such as:
