The crowded dining room at Contramar, the Roma Norte seafood restaurant, is dominated by a broad, abstract mural – of fish, naturally. The number one choice of diners at this high-end lunch spot is the snapper "a la talla" – an entire grilled, butterflied fish, flavored with red chile and green parsley. Your meal could also include such dishes as tacos with lightly fried shrimp or octopus, consommé Oaxacan "Riscalillo-style, and squid salad with warm potatoes and basil. For dessert try the fig tart or coconut flan. The perfect beverage to wash down your meal is the concoction known as a michelada – beer served over ice with lemon juice, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Arrive early (or late) if you want to secure a table without a reservation. Otherwise, enjoy the people watching as you join the crowd waiting on the sidewalk. Contramar is near the Palacio de Hierro department store on Ave. Oaxaca.
