Seafood is a rare pleasure in Santa Fe. It’s not that we can’t get high-quality fish here; we can. Thanks to dry ice and overnight shipping, the best catch of the coasts can be ours. But it’s not part of traditional New Mexico cuisine and, furthermore, indulging in a piece of Madagascan buttergill can set you back as much as dinner for four at Mariscos La Playa. One of Santa Fe’s best—and best-known—Mexican restaurants, Mariscos is the kind of place where you order a bucket of Coronitas and decimate the cracker basket while slurping up a plate of oysters on the half shell. A couple of beers tends to give you courage and next thing you know you’re happily throwing down octopus tentacles and watching shark fajitas sizzle. Que vivan los Mariscos La Playa!
