Ceviche - the refreshing and flavorful appetizer made with various seafood, spices and veggies, is a delicious gluten-free dish. I see it as basically being a seafood-stuffed salsa of sorts. You can find fresh takes on ceviche at a variety of seafood-focused eateries around the city, but here are a few notables...
