Pez Cantina seems like just another corporate downtown after-work spot, but this Mexican seafood restaurant has far more going for it. First off, the food is good and fresh, and given the area, it’s all pretty affordable. There’s also an excellent back patio and a daily Happy Hour from 3:30-7pm with $3 oysters and $8 craft beer, house cocktails, and select menu items that go far above your typical bar snack situation.
