Dining Guide

Nury’s

During the week, this is a dependable lunch spot. Come the weekend, the napery and bud vases appear, along with board-bound menus featuring cuisine that’s buzzworthy among the community’s recreational eaters. Our three faves: green-sauced enchiladas stuffed with fresh poblano chile and sprinkled with queso fresco; a salad of baby greens, strawberries, and pecans elevated by an excellent balsamic vinaigrette; and Key lime pie with a perfect balance of tangy citrus filling and crunchy crust. In fact, we’ve eaten our way through most of the dishes offered with only one minor hiccup: skip the tempura shrimp. The surf and turf, however, featured the best damn steak we’ve eaten recently: a good sear, rare inside, tender and juicy, with a buttery-beefy flavor. It came with steamed asparagus and criminally good mashed potatoes. We left sated and already planning our next visit. Local wines are featured, by the glass or bottle, at a fair price. The restaurant does get noisy when crowded, but you can retreat to a small, casual screened porch. Ask the owner about the peacock motif for a charming glimpse into this family-owned business.

    I was expecting the food to be really good as I had the good fortune to eat at the owner’s father’s(and father in law to the chef) legendary restaurant ,Manolo’s just outside of Las Hadas in Manzanillo for 25+ years.As a wandering Texan surfer who stopped into their restaurant to ask for directions because there was a surfer pulling his board off his car (owner Luis ,16 years old at the time ,50ish now) and invited in for a beer as his father (with Texas plates) pulled up to get the restaurant ready for that night’s service I was immediately made to feel one of the family.Though over a thousand miles from their origin Nury’s carries on the tradition of great food and a genuine feeling of being welcomed by the family.
