I'm glad that there are a few more good, modern restaurants near 4th st and Market. Tropisueno is one of them. It's got a lively atmosphere, good food, and good drinks.
Since it's conveniently located between the Moscone Center / SOMA area and the Union Square shopping area -- it does get crowded but not uncomfortably so. i had tried unsuccessfully to drop in to Tropisueno two times before, so this time i made a reservation.
As seems required these days in San Francisco, they have a multi-page menu of "mixologist" cocktails, including a full page of margaritas. The ones we had (Margarita de la Casa, Tropisueno) were good, and not too sweet. I also tried a drink from the sparkling wine menu (tequila, cava, and some sort of bitters). It was good but not as good as the margarita.
I enjoyed my salmon, which was perfectly baked in a banana leaf, and served with grilled pasilla peppers and onions. My husband enjoyed his pork dish. The dishes come with ample beans and rice, which we took home and were eating for two days after.
All in all, a fun successful dining experience.
