Tacos Mariachi gets its inspiration from Tijuana, where seafood is the order of the day. It also, proudly, gets creative with the fare, dressing the old-fashioned shrimp taco in stylish new clothes. Owner Jesús Carmona has worked for John Tesar, and chef Moises Rico spent years in the kitchen with Dean Fearing. Their combination of regional Mexican inspiration and big-league cooking skills is consistently delicious. The pulpo, or octopus, might be a must-have, although it’s hard to tell, since this place serves about a half-dozen must-have tacos. But tender, peppery octopus, diced finely to avoid chewiness, is as harmonious with avocado and a corn tortilla as fish would be.
