After 35 years as SM Pier Seafood, Yunnie Kim Morena took the helm of the Pier mainstay which her parents had opened in 1977 upon emigrating to the U.S. from Korea. Yunnie and her husband, Greg Morena, modernized and streamlined the look while preserving the restaurant’s original atmosphere and character. The relaxed seaside setting is a perfect compliment to the delicious menu that reflects a commitment to sustainably caught seafood, locally sourced ingredients, as well as an extensive craft beer and California wine program.

The Albright is honored to be the longest running restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier which also happens to be the birthplace of the beloved American icon, Popeye the sailor-man. Popeye was created in 1929 by cartoonist Elzie C. Segar and was inspired by a retired Navy sailor named Olaf Olsen who worked on the Pier. Don’t miss out on the life-size cut outs of Popeye, Olive Oyl and their baby, Swee’Pea outside the restaurant!
