Rio Mar Review
The seafood-centric menu here explores the flavors of Spain and Latin America. For entrées, try the Serrano ham–wrapped tuna or the stew-like zarzuela with chunks of fish and shellfish in a peppery red broth. New chef Miles Prescott has kept the favorites while adding extra layers of flavor. It's all tapas at lunch, when you tick off your selections on a small menu card: options include salty Spanish ham, roasted peppers, Manchego cheese, and marinated seafood. The dining room's low ceiling and tiled floor mean that the atmosphere can get loud and boisterous—but this, and the decor, are very reminiscent of good times in Barcelona. Over 40 Spanish wines are available, along with sherries, cocktails, and sangrias.
