Atop the crowded alleyway of Santee Alley lies a quiet, peaceful patio where on any given day a gentle breeze offers an escape from the crowded heat and a friendly waiting staff promises to keep you refreshed with the alcoholic beverage of your choice. That’s right, there’s a bar in Santee Alley.
It’s not just any bar. The full bar at Picante compliments the delicious menu of Latin-infused seafood dishes. The restaurant boasts “world famous” fish and shrimp tacos, and serves everything from Peruvian fish stew to shrimp BBQ flat bread, a house favorite. There are also a few chicken, beef and vegetarian dishes.
Don’t be fooled: Go up the stairway on Olympic between Santee Street and Maple Avenue to get to Picante on the second floor.
