  • Zengo (and Latin Lounge)

    Food just okay, not really worth the price

    My coworker had been telling me about this restaurant for a while so I was excited when Living Social had a deal for it. The menu was a bit limited and we were surprised there wasn't more Asian food (it was more like Asian-inspired Latin fusion). For $50, we got all the sushi dishes they had (four rolls). Each roll was 6 pieces, but my boyfriend (the bottomless pitt) was still hungry after. The sushi itself was just okay; I'm not sure what I should have expected since this wasn't a Japanese place (only, the name "Zengo" is a Japanese word...). Two of the four rolls were spicy (not a fan) and all had mayonnaise-based toppings on them, making the small dish for mixing soy sauce and wasabi totally unnecessary. The rolls had interesting tastes to them, and were clearly trying to be something other than a traditional Japanese roll, but I'm not sure they were a big success. They were just... interesting. The best thing about Zengo is the atmosphere. I've been to happy hour before (a MUCH better deal in terms of prices and sampling the menu) but the happy hour is a bit of a zoo. Dinner was much better -- we came on a Sunday night and the seating (upstairs) was spacious and darkly lit (mood lighting!). The bathrooms were also cool -- yes, I notice these things for my interior design friends. Our waitress was also super nice and our water glasses were kept full to the brim nearly the entire night. But at the end of the day, I'd rather spend my money on some fantastic food at a hole-in-the-wall. At Zengo, you're definitely paying for the experience.

    Good cuisine, good scene, pricey

    I believe my title sums it up well. It's descent food, and a nice venue, but a very pricey. It's not a good value for the money spent. I will spend for good food and scene from time to time, but this is no DC Coast. Typical of places opening in Chinatown for last couple of years. I like many other places in Chinatown better that don't cost this much.

    Typical

    The menu is the most contrived and annoying menu I have ever read. This is a typical DC restaurant. It tries too hard and falls so short of what's good. I mean, really, tomato soup with tofu and truffle oil? What does the truffle oil add to the tomato and tofu? It is the most overrated ingredient, but I'm sure the tourists in Chinatown order it 1,000 times over because it is an ingredient. It makes me long for the days when I lived in NYC. Can't wait to go back. At least if someone was as pompous as to try a "Mexican/Asian fusion restaurant", (and believe me, there are a ton of pompous restaurants in Manhattan) at least they will do it well.

    Nice spot

    Food was good. It was a different mix, Asian and Latin theme. To give you an example of the menus mixture, we had WonTon Tacos (sushi in a taco). The decor was really nice. Portions were sort of small, could have been what we ordered. Going for appetizers is worth the trip.
