Best Seafood Restaurant - 2007
Wapango - CLOSED
Tired of shrimp cocktail, grilled salmon and crab cakes chock-full o' filler? Shake up your seafood routine at this pan-Latin restaurant. A ceviche of ahi tuna will spark your taste buds with its mixture of tart lime, fresh tuna, coconut milk, pickled onions and cilantro. Tired of tuna? There's also a ceviche featuring the fresh fish of the day. Fans of mollusks will rejoice: You can enjoy mussels in a coconut-chili broth, or you can have mussels and scallops as well as shrimp and calamari in a moqueca, a Brazilian stew rich with the flavor of coconut milk. Even if you're in the mood for meat, you can have tenderloin paired with succulent, buttery langostino tails. Yes, there is shrimp cocktail, but instead of bland old cocktail sauce, it's served with avocado, pico de gallo, lime, chipotle pepper and tomato sauce.
