Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Marisco's Altamar.

Marisco's Altamar brings together northern Mexican cuisine and seafood, specializing in feasting fusions of the two culinary styles. South-of-the-border shipholds sustain stomachs with seafood plates, such as the Marisco's Specialty plate, containing fish, shrimp, octopus, and snow crab sautéed with pico de gallo ($15.95), or the crabmeat enchiladas smothered in green tomatillo sauce and melted cheese ($11.35). House specialties include the camarones costa azul, which wraps shrimp in bacon and sneaks a jalapeño time bomb in the middle ($13.95), and more traditional Mexican plates include guacamole-garnished chicken fajitas ($10.95) and deep-fried or soft beef tacos ($8.95). Prepare your throat for midnight sword-swallowing demonstrations by lining it with ricas micheladas, comprised of lemon juice on the rocks with your choice of beer ($3.75).

Guests in Marisco's Altamar's vibrant interiors dine on tables adorned in Aztec artistic designs, with the rest of the restaurant steering clear of classic Aztec touches such as human sacrifices and hegemonic governmental structures. Live mariachi music sometimes accompanies meals.

Mariscos Altamar

The aromas of sizzling fajitas and marinated shrimp mingle in Mariscos Altamar’s dining room while hosts welcome diners with charming Spanish greetings. Along with the Aztec paintings, Owner Hector Hernandez’s menu, with seafood as the primary focus, hearkens back to northern Mexico where he grew up. Along with grilling steaks and spooning ranchero sauce over chiles rellenos, chefs also stuff sautéed crabmeat into enchiladas and fry platefuls of breaded shrimp.

The dining room maintains an airy ambiance with its light wooden tones and neutral-colored walls, and an aquarium full of small fish and adorable baby Poseidons catch diners' eyes at the entrance. On Thursday and Saturday evenings and Friday afternoons, the restaurant regales guests with the lilting melodies of live musicians.
