If you're just walking along Ala Moana Blvd. in the upscale area of Honolulu and you were to look at the bright orange marquis with "Tango" on it you'd never really think there was a fine dining restaurant behind those full plate glass windows--- but there is and it's fantastic! It doesn't scream fine dining at a glance in terms of stuffy or overdone--just sleek, simple Scandinavian and somewhat casual-looking yet pristine. The name, "Tango" has nothing to do with Argentina or the dance...it's a combination of first and last names familiar to the owners. One glance at the dinner menu has you thinking European at its best with brilliant application of local ingredients with fine touches of French, Italian and Scandinavian cuisine with words like "gravlax", "confit", "caramelized foie gras", "hand cut fettucini" jumping off the page at you. Their wine list is equally impressive with tasty choices from around the globe. Dinner prices are so reasonable it is almost startling. Our dinner choices leaned towards the Italian choices on the menu with a superb risotto, and the langoustine with home made fettucini which were off the charts. You cannot afford to miss this restaurant for dinner...and as I've read, you could have the same enthusiastic response to their breakfast and lunch menus!! Next time we're in town Tango will be at the top of the list for whatever meal is up next!!
