This Montclare spot serves up seafood in the style of Nayarit (a state on Mexico's central west coast), which means shrimp, and lots of it. You'll find it in empanadas, soup and fajitas, and you can get large platters of it too. Perhaps the most interesting preparation is the pina rellena, a half-pineapple stuffed with shrimp, cheese and more pineapple. A host of beachy cocktails is available too; try the Coco Loco, served in a carved-out coconut, for fun. There's ample seating in the high-ceilinged dining room, where the focal point is a massive flat-screen TV (composed of several small flat screens) that plays soccer games and Spanish-language music videos.
