SAN DIEGO - The Iconic Anthony's Fish Grotto closed in January after more than 50 years at its prime Embarcadero location.

But the Port of San Diego's decision to not renew the restaurant's lease could end up costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars because Anthony's replacement could be held up in a jurisdictional battle.
