With two decades under its belt,this might just be the oldest Guatemalan spot in town. Start with the bright pink tamarind-and-rum cocktail, and you’ll blend right into the cozy room’s color scheme. The menu is heavy on seafood, with standouts that include grilled tilapia, grilled shrimp and seafood soup. The chuchitos (Guatemalan tamales) are excellent, and the burritos aren’t your standard Mexican variation but instead emphasize fresh veggies and black beans.
