    Wapango
    CLOSED A big, bold pan-Latin restaurant with a breathtaking design, clockwork service and dishes that are always satisfying, often excellent. The best dishes play with the contrast between savory and sharp - beef tenderloin served with succulent langostino tails in a bright garlic sauce; adobo-seasoned chicken perked up with a "ceviche" of avocado and corn - not to mention the subtle interplay between sweet and earthy in the crab-spinach enchiladas. The wine list features an impressive array of South American wines, including a section devoted to malbec, and desserts are worth saving room for - an important point to remember, considering the generous entrée portions.
    Wave Taco
    Wave Taco opened in early 2009 on a once-vacant lot just north of Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis. It imported several tons of white sand from Florida, set up two immaculate outdoor beach volleyball courts and declared its motto to be "shirts optional." Order the house specialty -- a supersweet concoction called the Frozen Margarita Swirl -- at the tiki bar, then try not to stare too hard at the swimsuit-clad coeds frolicking on the faux beach. The only difference between this place and a south-of-the-border hotspot is that the kids are drinking Bud Light Lime instead of Corona with lime.
