Delicia Restaurant Review

: The flavors of South America, Spain and the Caribbean keep the crowds steady at Delicia, a neighborhood restaurant that has become a destination for diners around the city. Hues of browns, tans and white lend a chic brightness to the walls and sleek furniture, including the comfortable upholstered booths that buffer the sounds of happy diners. An amuse-bouche of sancocho, a mildly spiced Spanish soup, may start the festive mood while you peruse the lengthy drinks menu. Try the fish tacos or the “cazuela de mariscos,” a satisfying dish of mussels, calamari, scallops, shrimp and rice with a saffron sauce. Short ribs braised with ancho salsa and served with roasted vegetables and white sweet potato mash is a fine version of Latin pot roast. Be adventurous with wines and cocktails by asking the servers for suggestions. Pisco sours are popular. For dessert, consider the churros accompanied by an ancho chile-chocolate dipping sauce.
