La Fisheria

La Fisheria is located just north of Market Square. La Fisheria/Facebook

A new location near downtown Houston's Market Square and a new chef mean a new start for the Mexican seafood restaurant. Chef Vidal Elias Murillo takes over for celebrity chef Aquiles Chavez, who has returned to Mexico to oversee culinary operations at the La Fisheria locations there. While the menu of ceviches and fish dishes will be familiar to anyone who's dined at La Fisheria previously, the restaurant certainly seems to benefit from having a chef in the kitchen. Thinly-sliced octopus carpaccio holds its own against any version in the city, and fish dishes like roasted red snapped rubbed with achiote spices arrived properly cooked and very flavorful. A full selection of tequila cocktails and an inviting space should make it a solid happy hour destination for downtown office workers.
