Zengo

The Technicolor sign outside makes Zengo look more like a cheesy dance club than a Latin-Asian fusion restaurant, but reserve judgment until you’ve ventured into the chic cocktail lounge. It gets packed during happy hour (Monday through Thursday 5 to 7), which includes selected half-price drinks and half-price appetizers. Mexican restaurateur Richard Sandoval’s influence can be seen on the cocktail list, where mango mojitos rub shoulders with Grand Marnier margaritas. The sake, served in a wine glass, is excellent, as are the Angry Zengo tuna rolls on the lounge menu.
