Translating to “Coastal Neighborhood,” this humble yet prestigious establishment was built by four friends who had a passion for creating remarkable experiences through sharing delicious food and drink. The name of the restaurant reflects their approach to seasonal cooking and genuine hospitality. Head Chef Bustamante’s rotating seasonal menu puts a unique spin on coastal and contemporary Mexican cuisine. Empanaditas, guacamole and tacos, plus dishes like Braised Short Ribs and Scallops Yucatan are among some of the items Barrio Costero has to offer.
