- Cuisines: American, Seafood, Californian
You can't judge a book by its cover: Inside this cozy Old Town casita, the decor is cleanly contemporary and the food is anything but Mexican. Established in 1980, Cafe Pacifica serves upscale, imaginative seafood at decent prices; among the temptations are crab-stuffed portobello mushrooms topped with grilled asparagus, anise-scented bouillabaisse, and daily fresh fish selections served grilled with your choice of six sauces. Signature items include Hawaiian ahi with shiitake mushrooms and ginger butter, griddled mustard catfish, and the "Pomerita," a pomegranate margarita. Arrive before 6:30pm to take advantage of the early bird special: entree with soup or salad and dessert for $21.
