Since its start in 1980, James Sanz, a native Spaniard, has been serving Mexican favorites, like fajitas, chimichangas and “enchiladas poblanas.” Sanz’s “flautas banderas” are pan-fried, tri-colored corn tortillas, filled with shredded skirt steak, that are served with black beans, rice, guacamole and sour cream. But chef Marcus Zumba also crafts Spanish classics, including “mariscada en salsa verde” (littleneck clams, Prince Edward Island mussels, Gulf shrimp, calamari and Maine lobster with parsley, extra virgin olive oil and garlic served with saffron rice), “langosta rellena” (Maine lobster, stuffed with lump crabmeat and shrimp, served with vegetables of the day), and, of course, the traditional “arroz con pollo.” Casa Pepe also has a party room that can accommodate 120 guests. Closed on Tuesdays. Hours: Monday-Thursday, 12 pm-11 pm; Friday-Saturday, 12 pm- 12 am; Sundays, 12 pm-11 pm.
