Smack in Seaside's epicenter sits this hip, happening, and bohemian tapas and wine bar, sister to Marina Café. It's always packed here, but more on the mellow side—a great place for a date or a chill gathering with friends. The menu features wine flights, cheeses, meats, and a menu of tapas, highlighted by creative combinations like blackened shrimp tacos with mango jicama slaw, avocado, and pickled jalapenos, or grilled pork medallions with pecans, apricots, black pepper brandy cream, and herbed mashed potatoes. Small plates? Sort of, but they're huge on flavor. Bar seating is highly coveted, but the small, nondescript interior isn't where the action is—when something is going on outside at the amphitheater, outdoor seating is where it's at. There's a lunch and sushi menu, too, and half-priced wine, beer, and sushi daily from 4–6pm.
