MOUTH-WATERING VIDEO >> Cortez brings fresh eats and tropical vibes to Glenwood South
The owners of Jose and Sons (Charlie Ibarra and Chef Oscar Diaz) opened The Cortez Seafood + Cocktail, a chef-driven seafood restaurant with an emphasis on fresh seafood prepared with global inspiration. If you're in the mood for ceviche, seafood fueled small plates and oysters, this is the place. The cocktail menu is stacked with tropical gems—plenty of rum and mezcal features that'll help you forget you're still in Raleigh. The interior and patio have a modern "tropical" vibe with a turquoise leather couch, palm accents and a creative mermaid scale accent to the bar.
"The Cortez will feature freshly prepared seafood with a globalized pantry. We will be working with local purveyors and fisherman to source responsibly caught and raised product and a rotating selection of oysters obtained both locally and nationally." – The Cortez
