Matamoros is a classically trained chef with several years under his belt working at some of the finer restaurants in New Orleans and his home country of Venezuela. His cooking experience has run the gamut from French to German to Italian. At Mediterraneo, Matamoros is turning his focus to seafood and fresh Med ingredients -- food he has been perfecting over the years through his catering business. The menu offers a wide selection of ceviches, tapas, and seafood dishes such as whole red snapper baked in salt ($29), seafood paella ($23), and grilled white tuna "escolar" ($27). Tapas and ceviches are offered in single servings or in sampling plates, making them ideal for indecisive diners and sharing. The restaurant offers free Wi-Fi and a sizable outdoor area, and is welcoming to kids and pets, as well as those who want to enjoy a $14.95 three-course executive lunch.
