New Mexican restaurant with seafood cuisine opens in New Tampa

NEW TAMPA — When it came time to open his new Mexican restaurant, El Pescador, Jesus Macias looked to his father who owns a restaurant by the same name in Cartersville, Ga.

"We brought his recipes down here," Macias said. "We specialize in authentic Mexican food and seafood."

El Pescador Mexican restaurant features a large menu that focuses on seafood instead of Tex-Mex. Open for lunch and dinner, diners can choose from seafood such as crab legs, oysters, lobster, shrimp, fish and ceviche.

Also on the menu are tacos, burritos, enchiladas, fajitas and soups.

"Everything here is fresh daily," Macias said.

The drink menu includes draft and bottled beer, wine and margaritas. Catering and take-out are available.

El Pescador is located at 19062 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. It is open 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday.
