Mariscos in Austin
Mexican seafood restaurants are a gustatory vacation
There have been a few losses to the local mariscos scene recently. Sadly, La Mojarra Feliz on North Lamar closed down. El Pescador across from Hill's on South Congress is being remodeled; no word yet on whether or not it is being updated or slated to be something new. The mariscos restaurant that was in the flea market on the northwest corner of West Gate Boulevard and William Cannon went under, as did Sabores on Cameron Road. The mariscos spots remaining live on in all of their seafood glory, with happy seafood-loving crowds and a little help from Opochtli, the Aztec god of fishing; St. Peter, the famous fishing apostle; and St. Andrew, the Catholic patron saint of all fishermen.
