- Cuisines: Seafood, Latin American, Steakhouses
A short walk from most of the High-Rise hotels, Tango features sexy Argentine dance inside, live music and shopping kiosks outside, and decent food. The flavor here is South American, from the churrasco beef to the bilingual menu and Chilean wines. The large interior dining room features splayed cowhides and views of the 9-foot-long open grill. On the stage near the entrance, live tango dancers smolder before a backdrop painted to resemble a Buenos Aires street; a few lucky diners get brief lessons. The pleasant outside terrace overlooks a brick plaza, where live music fills the air from 8 to 11pm. For a light start, try tasty Caesar salad or seafood marinated in lime vinegar. The enormous barbecued beef dishes get mixed reviews, but all are better with chimichurri sauce, a savory blend of garlic, parsley, and olive oil. Don't get anything well-done; it can be overdone. Shrimp in garlic and olive oil is a hit and comes with rice, fried plantains, and corn on the cob. Ice cream crowns the buttery Tango dessert crepe. It's filled with dulce de leche, a heavenly caramel confection.
