Eats & Drinks
Since Zengo translates to “give and take”, savor, indulge, and explore the taste of tangy spicy flavors. Try Zengo’s Chicken Tandoori dish that features the sweetness of mangos with the spiciness of cilantro and black beans for a filling but savory dinner. For a seductive drink try their Midnight Karma which offers guests splashes of Rangpur Gin with fruity blueberries for a satisfying thirst quencher. Hopefully later on karma won’t be a.... well, you know. If you feel inspired to have drink with an Asian twist, try the Kimono Kiss flavorful Mandarin vodka intertwined with sake for a rich, sweet, and worldly taste.
Modern open spaces with architecture details are featured at Zengo. Family style dark wood tables with small armless barstools allow ideal room between guests for intimate conversations. Pendant lighting adorns the tall and simple ceilings along with exposed wood beams and the walls and nearby columns are coated with warm terracotta color. For large groups, glass enclosures add privacy but openness to the surrounding restaurant area that is lined with orange booths and beige chairs. The bar also features nude colors with tall dark brown barstools and neutral granite countertops. Along the backsplash are different textured surfaces with an Asian theme. A lounge area facing the bar allows for more seating and small group conversations.

Jesse T.12/16/11Tuna taco appetizer, and braised beef entree.. amazing
ShannonRenee 12/12/11Great happy hour spot! The edamame is delicious. You would think steaming or grilling soybeans is easy...NOT. Zengo does it right and well.
Alexis M.9/19/11Amazing for special events. Complimentary glasses of champagne and special dessert for our anniversary! All you have to do is ask when you make your reservation.
