Founded in 2002, Aguaviva serves what it calls seaside Latino cuisine crafted by chef Hector Crespo. The menu has a selection of seafood dishes prepared with Latin and Caribbean spices, as well as six different ceviches and colossal seafood towers. Tropical cocktails, including pineapple mojitos, complement the entrées. The dining room has an open kitchen and a raw bar with oysters resting on beds of ice. The décor is dominated by shades of blue and white, designed to evoke the sea, and attention-grabbing blue lights shaped like the restaurant jellyfish (aguaviva means jellyfish in Spanish) hang from the ceiling.
