Dining Guide

La Mariscana

Mexican coastal seafood standards are reinvented here with a casual sports-bar atmosphere paired to the sport du jour. We’ll cheer for the ceviche, the true barometer for seafood, especially when trapped in a profoundly noncoastal setting. Here, it sports citrus and roasted Sonoran chiles. Fish or shrimp tacos come in at least six variations, and there’s an equally broad spectrum of house salsas, grilled veggies, and cheese. Dip into the scallop soup, velvety with butter, garnished with plump pozole (hominy), and drizzled with an electric green salsa. Levanta Muertos (Raise the Dead), the deep, piquant shrimp cocktail, is aptly named and could seriously dispatch the most rooted hangover. Cheeky Camarones al Samurai, golden fried shrimp glazed with a sweet chile cum soy sauce, are served perfectly chilled (not shaken) in a martini glass. Try the Negra Modelo–sautéed mussels, heavy with ham, onion, tomato, and basil.
