The happy hour at Peska Seafood Culture is an experience I’d want to relive over and over again. Don’t expect any fried seafood baskets or plastic bibs here. Peska takes the concept of a coastal dine-in seafood market and elevates it to a whole new level. From the look of their interior, there is no sign (or smell) that the restaurant also houses a fresh seafood market. We even got to listen to the sounds of a live accordion player.
Their happy Hhour menu features beer, wine and hand-crafted cocktails ranging between 5 and 9 dollars. Don’t skip out on the chance to try their special Peska Gin and Tonic made with thyme and juniper berries for $7. They even have a delicious version made with grapefruit, if you’re a fan of fruity drinks. For $9, you can get any one of their three signature mules, as well.
They also have a “Peska Special Snacks & Bubbles” combo where you can order a platter of fresh seafood with a side of prosecco or champagne. Is there anything more luxurious than snacking on fresh oysters, shrimp, and crab legs with a glass of champagne? In addition to the typical raw bar fare, they also have fresh ceviche, tacos, tostadas and sashimi that varies based on the freshest ingredients available that day. The food is perfectly constructed to let the fresh seafood take the spotlight.
If you’re not a seafood fan, don’t fear. The Peska happy hour menu also features pork belly buns that are to die for. If you like to end the evening on a sweet note, try their paletas, or mini ice cream pops, for only $2 in assorted flavors. So if you’re in the mood to venture away from the typical margarita happy hour, stop by Peska Seafood Culture to get a taste of simple seaside life in the midst of the big city.
