Dining Guide

La Mariscana

Life beyond the beach usually means a life without coastal cuisine. Not here. Let’s start with a citrus-brightened welcome of cheeky ceviche with shrimp and roasted Sonoran chiles. The decision to order which of a widening spectrum of antojitos (appetizers) can be daunting. Jump on the queso tatemado, seared panela cheese blanketing refried beans lightly sprinkled with a smoky tomato-based salsa. Then there’s the refreshing aguachile verde, an artful layering of chilled shrimp, cucumbers, and onions with a lime-based marinade. The stellar Baja-style Capitan taco features tempura-fried shrimp bathed in a creamy salsa and tucked in workman-worthy corn tortillas with crisp cabbage and radish slaw. Beefeaters will want the rustic Tacos Tintan: fajita meat heavy with cilantro, onion, and radishes and smart with a garlicky salsa taquera.
