** Alcomar is closed
You know that feeling of love at first sight? Well that’s how I felt when I first walked into Alcomar, El Chile’s newest Latin-inspired seafood restaurant on South 1st St. I may have let out a little gasp and squeal, and told the boyfriend, “I already love it!” Exaggerated? Probably, but I’m a sucker for beautifully designed restaurants.
