With marine murals and an exposed kitchen, this perpetually packed Roma eatery was already a seafood institution before the neighborhood became trendy. Its tuna tostadas (with chipotle mayo, caramelized onions and avocado) and fish carnitas have been widely imitated across the city, but the loyal clientele knows that Contramar did it all first. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with the coconut flan or fig tart.
