Imagine you’re in Acapulco at this lively, colorful seafood restaurant, with its dining room about the size of half a soccer field and a bar to match. The menu is just as imposing; everything is swimmingly on order, from authentic ceviches and campechanas to boiled shrimp, fresh oysters, and every manner of fish and shellfish (with portions large enough for the table to share). As you would suppose, the traditional fried fish is full-on crunch, battered and crisp, but the grilled versions are moist and flavorful too. We dove into a chile relleno with seafood sauce and found it complex and multifaceted, from the eggy batter and melted cheese (yes, cheese with seafood—it worked) to the sauce chock-full of shrimp, fish, octopus, crab, and oysters.
