Restaurant Details

The late, great Pupuseria Las Delicias was always inexplicably empty, which surely contributed to its demise. A perpetually empty seafood restaurant inspires even less confidence, and that's the case with the South American spot that replaced it. An unnervingly large variety of shrimp, calamari, and oyster cocktails, fishy soups, and grilled, broiled and fried platillos—including the matapasiones (aka "mattress breaker"), a heaping platter of shrimp, octopus, crab, and rice dressed with onions, tomato, cilantro, and cheese—are offered to a desolate dining room nearly every night. Still, even on the slowest of those a lone server/cook was able to produce a passably fresh shrimp ceviche and a huge if overfried red snapper.
