I invited a guest to lunch. The appetizers were tasty. The entrees arrived while we were still eating the appetizers. The hot food was cold. My guest couldn’t eat the short ribs because she found them too sweet. (I didn’t taste them.)

If you're going for brunch, come with as many people as possible. The portions are family style so it's easier to try different items on the menu otherwise you're just wasting good food. The worst part during our brunch was that our waiter was not...More

Nice setting with a bar in the basement. Good food and a reasonable price in Manhattan. Tried the cod and the sashimi and both were great.

I had higher expectations for Zengo, but it just didn't seem all too great. Yes, the venue is amazing in terms of decor and ambiance. Zengo's a great place to hang out, grab some drinks, and be comfortable. However, the food is a different story....More

Description
Zengo is a sophisticated blend of Latin-Asian styles and flavors. Chef Richard Sandoval, whose accolades include Bon Appétit Restaurateur of the Year and Mexico’s Toque d’Oro, artfully spins Latin-Asian ingredients into beautifully balanced dishes. Light preparations and tasting portions invite sampling and sharing a variety of items. To complement the cuisine, Zengo offers one of the largest collections of tequila and agave-based spirits in the United States. Guests may sample over 400 varieties in the downstairs Tequila Library. Zengo also boasts an extensive list of Latin wines and Japanese sakes, which are best enjoyed at the mezzanine level Wine & Sake Bar. The cocktail menu showcases Latin-Asian classics made with fine spirits and fresh, hand-muddled fruits.
