Zengo In Brief
Zengo is chef Richard Sandoval’s Denver restaurant, located in the heart of Riverfront Park in downtown Denver.
Latin and Asian food served together. If you’re willing to try empanadas and sushi side by side you’re in the right place.
Oak and reddish design with blue and yellow accent lights. Like a forest with a leafy canopy of colorful wine bottles.
The bar and lounge area is a hip place to hang out, but needs a few more servers. 20 minutes to run a credit card doesn’t cut it.
Visit early or late. The food is excellent, but I suspect the popularity stems more from the sum of the design elements and trendy location rather than actual food itself. Thus the place is mobbed with insufficient staff for a hopping winter Saturday night.
