Delicia Restaurant Review

: Latin cuisine inflected with flavors from the Americas, Spain and the Caribbean keeps 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 hip brightness to the walls and sleek furniture, including the comfortable upholstered booths. An amuse-bouche of sancocho, a mildly spiced Spanish soup, starts the festive mood while you peruse the menu. Those looking for a familiar Mexican selection will be more than happy with the plentiful fish taco dish, accompanied by herbed rice and stewed black beans, or the ample, tasty empanadas with a creamy habanero sauce. Alternatively, savor tuna with sun-dried tomato chimichurri, mofongo and roasted vegetables, or the aji de Gallina, shredded chicken with aji amarillo sauce, steamed rice, toasted walnuts and a hard-cooked egg. Grilled triggerfish with olives, capers, tomato, onion, jalapeño, cinnamon and roasted seasonal vegetables keeps guests returning time and again --- especially when followed by traditional tres leches cake, topped with guava compote, tomato preserves or chocolate sauce. Cocktails include pisco sours and mojitos, along with margaritas and sangría. Most wines and beers are Spanish, so be adventurous or ask the knowledgeable servers for suggestions.
