Fresh seafood from Gulf Coast and West Coast waters appears in a variety of enticing forms. Plump Gulf shrimp, arranged on a luxurious pool of silken atole corn sauce, are topped with a crunchy crown of Manchego cheese and herbed bread crumbs, and enlivened by a piquant chile arbol aioli and flavor bombs of grilled cherry tomatoes. But be warned, the dessert menu will leave you wanting more.
