Mark Ellman owns three restaurants in a row on the beautiful seashore fronting Mala Wharf. Frida’s, his latest, features Latin-inspired cuisine in a breezy dining room accented with pretty Mexican tiles and wrought-iron chandeliers. Sip one of 40 tequilas at the open-air bar. Ribe eye mojo de ajo, and grilled Spanish octopus with tomatillo salsa and fresh guacamole are delicious, especially on the romantic oceanfront lanai.
