Special dinner for 'Deadliest Catch' captain in Monterey

Captain Jonathan Hillstrand of the 113-foot-long fishing boat F/V Time Bandit, and one of the stars of the Discovery Channel's hit show "Deadliest Catch," will vist Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf on Friday, May 14, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The skipper will dock himself at the award-winning Domenico's on the Wharf restaurant.

In conjunction with his visit, restaurant owner Dominic Mercurio will offer a three-course meal of soup or salad, Alaskan king crab legs or Alaskan salmon, and baked Alaska dessert.

Dinners will include a photo signed by Capt. Hillstrand and a brief visit with him. Cost is $50 per person, plus tax and tip. If Domenico's fills up with fans, the overflow will be seated at the nearby Cafe Fina, also owned by Mercurio.

Captain Hillstrand will also sign an additional 100 photos during his Friday visit that Domenico's on the Wharf will give to the first 100 diners to eat at the restaurant after 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 15.

"We're hosting the caption because we want to promote the use of sustainable wild Alaskan seafood directly from the fishermen," Mercurio said. "As a restaurateur and coming from a fishing family -- and as a member of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program -- we believe in being as ecologically conscious as possible."

Domenico's and Cafe Fina are on Fisherman's Wharf. For more information: (831) 372-3655 or (831) 372-5200.
