Aquario Restaurant Restaurant Review

: A lackluster storefront exterior belies a considerably more inviting interior of Portuguese murals and a simply appointed white-and-mauve tablecloth setting, an unassuming atmosphere in which to enjoy the Portuguese-Brazilian cuisine. The comprehensive menu includes a variety of meat, fish and seafood options, but the emphasis is on the latter two. The light and subtly flavored purée of vegetables soup and the crisp Belgian endive, arugula and radicchio salad make for nice precursors, as do appetizers like the filet of fresh sardines served chilled with escabeche sauce and the Mediterranean diced octopus in a chopped onion, tomato and fresh parsley salad. Broiled Chilean sea bass is paired with a caper sauce, and brook trout filet gets a sprinkle of sliced roasted almonds; both excel in preserving the delicate flavors of the fish. The wine list, consisting of selections from Portugal, Chile and Spain among other regions, works well with the menu. Pair the Chilean sea bass with a glass of Aveleda vinho verde.
