A dining experience This place is amazing! It is not just a meal, it’s an experience. The food is excellent! My fiancée took me here for my birthday and we are both still raving about how good it was. I had the cod. It was filling and delicious! It was the kind of meal you wished would never end. We...

Worth making the stop, they don't take reservations on a Saturday night. Be prepared to wait, definitely worth it!

The cocktails were pricey and not a great selection on the happy hour list. It was very loud and echoed so it was hard to have a conversation.

We went to Zengo for Brunch on a Saturday. The service was poor, took very long to get the drinks and the food. we were told that all the items on the menu would be served to us and we only maybe got about 5-6 things. When we asked for more it took so long that our 2 hour limit... More

We were looking for a place near my daughter's place to take her for brunch. Over and over again, Zengo came up as the place to go. They serve a bottomless brunch. For a fixed price per person, your table has the ability to order unlimited plates and brunch cocktails for 2 hours. First the good: the service was excellent... More

We have eaten here a few times and loved it every time. The one consistent thing is that the specialty drinks are the best! Try something different and enjoy!!!!

We ate here on Christmas eve and loved it. We weren't sure about the Mexican/Asian fusion at first but it grew on us! The atmosphere was great, although we were told it was quieter than normal, and the staff were friendly and very helpful with suggestions. The idea is that you share small plates of food between your party and... More

This is a fun, vibrant (noisy, but who cares) restaurant with an interesting Latin/Asian fusion menu. The food itself did not disappoint. We had an excellent meal and an awesome waiter (the entire wait staff was great). I would have given this five stars, except for one part of the experience. We had made a reservation a couple of weeks... More

For $42 a person for all you can drink and all you can eat small plates in 2 hours, this is a brunch STEAL! The vibe inside the restauraunt was really cool, and our waitress was fantastic! She kept the food and drinks coming, despite the fact it would have been easy for her to ignore us to limit what... More

Went here for a birthday dinner. We had no reservation so we figured we'd be trying our luck, but being a Monday night it wasn't packed. On arrival two ladies were at the reception desk area. One on the phone to a customer and one who looked like a manager, just browsing her iPhone. Neither said hello or acknowledged us.... More

Description
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.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
