The "cathedral of seafood" is a jaw-dropper. The menu is half seafood and half grilled, meat-centric Norteño. Try the tostada de pulpo, a pile of tender, griddled octopus with scallions and pepper.
This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.
