Overview

Swim Uptown to Peska Seafood Culture with its Mexican-inspired menu featuring dishes like soft shell crab tacos or miso bacalao (salt cod). With a dining room decked out in salmon and dove gray tones, sculptures hang from the ceiling, resembling schools of fish. A fresh raw bar and "Peska snacks" offer lighter fare for those wanting bites with cocktails, wine or beer.
