The Wharf is home to Del Mar, a distinctly superb restaurant by famed chef Fabio Trabocchi. “A culinary love letter to his Spanish wife and business partner, Maria, the expensive two-floor eatery sports a nautical decor with its crisp blue and green palette, and a menu that reads like a primer on Spanish cuisine. Naturally, there’s a strong showing of cheese, charcuterie, and simply dressed raw fish, but it’s the classic, crowd pleasing tapas (like pan con tomate, croquetas de jamón, and tortilla espanola) you shouldn’t pass up. Seafood fans will flip the Paella de Pescado y Marisco, an oversized pan brimming with bomba rice and a bounty of pristine seafood, including Maine lobster, PEI mussels, and tiger prawns.”
