Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

El 7 Mares
Sea blue walls and painted portholes contribute to the oceanic atmosphere at El 7 Mares. The restaurant tempts taste buds with fresh seafood flavored with Mexican ingredients such as poblano pepper sauce, pico de gallo, and guacamole. Start a meal with the aguachile, chopped shrimp marinated in a jalapeno-lime sauce. Entrees include the classic carne asada and carnitas along with the signature molcajete de mariscos, a sizzling cauldron of shrimp, calamari, scallops, mussels, and crab legs served in bowl made of volcano rock blessed by Poseidon himself.
