If you'd prefer your family dramas involved eating fish rather than sleeping with them, hit Lazaranda. Opening tomorrow, it's the first US resto from a clan of Monterrey seafood specialists, who've outfitted their open-kitchen 100-seater with a Talavera-lined, L-shaped granite bar whose garage door allows both inside & patio seating, plus slatted spherical wooden chandeliers, Frida reproductions touting Latin cuisine, and a 10ft Pisces sculpture made almost entirely out of zarandas -- a tool for grilling fish and preventing Pittsburgh's salvation.
The sprawling menu, which has a light Chinese influence as a result of 19thC Sino-Mex trade routes, breaks down like this:
Seafood: Apps are strong like bull, with Michoacan ahi tostadas (w/ guac, spinach chiffonade, citrus soy, creamy chipotle), Don Pedro-style calamari, and six ceviches. Get bigger with a la carte lobster tacos and blue crab enchiladas, or have the catch of the day done your way: grilled with one of four house sauces, or kitchen-prepped using one of seven methods, including the oyster-sauced, lobster-veloute'd "Tamarind " -- one of the "mother sauces", which mothers often drink to put up with Danzig dating their daughters.
Not Seafood: Dine on deep-fried cubes of rib eye w/ guac & handmade tortillas; corn torts stuffed w/ chicken, black bean sauce & chorizo; and dried-chile-sauced grilled beef tenderloin served with cactus leaves and grilled panela, grilled Piniella being a stale "So, why didn't it work out with the Cubs?"
As for liquids, expect fresh-squeezed Key lime margs fueled by a 40+ strong tequila collection, plus South American vinos, Mexico-only draft beers, and an espresso machine, so that, stuffed and caffeinated, you won't be sleeping with anyone.
