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.

We had an event and the place was all ours. Bartenders were fantastic taking care of all of us and our unusual drink orders.

Tried the same concept in Denver / was great for a time than the owner tried to be a celeb chef - a wanna be Ramsey or Flay - alas he fails to pay attention and puts out a mediocre product.

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.
