Seafood’s the star at Kosta in Miami
The goods: Seafood is the focus at Kosta, a breezy newcomer with a spacious patio on a mini-restaurant row a few blocks south of Mary Brickell Village. The owners hail from Ecuador, and Latin cuisine informs the menu.
The grub: Nine types of ceviches swim in zingy bowlfuls of thinly sliced red onions, minced cilantro and lime juice, while the parihuela de mariscos brings a generous bowl of mixed seafood chowder in a tomato broth. Cooked dishes include crisp, pan-fried coconut grouper and shrimp risotto. Land lubbers will find comfort in traditional lomo saltado (steak stir-fry with French fries) and chicken teriyaki with coconut rice. Lunch crowds dig the $10 special (available from noon to 3 p.m.) with shrimp ceviche and scallops Alfredo plus sides like sweet plantains and tempura vegetables.
1250 S. Miami Ave., Miami; 786-360-4155.
