Genaro Silva’s namesake restaurant Genaro’s closed yesterday. The restaurateur delivered pretty terrific food dating back to the 1980’s with such restaurants as Genaro’s Tropical, Moctezuma’s and Garmo’s . His latest restaurant served up insanely delicious seafood and Tex Mex with a bent on Yucatan-style food.
Now we will all be Jonesing for a fix of El Cortez-Saffron Linguini with clams, mussels, shrimp, squid and snapper in Tequila Cream Sauce; Pez Espada-Grilled Swordfish Kebabs; Relleno Del Mar-a mild poblano filled with shrimp, crab, snapper and cheese lightly breaded in an Ancho Chile-Avocado Cream Sauce; Spinach and Seafood Enchiladas.
The restaurant was located at 6465 E. Mockingbird.
