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. Portobello mushrooms are sautéed in garlic sauce and New Zealand green mussels are baked in a red sauce comprised of sliced tomatoes, onions, and green and red sweet peppers. Bacalhau, a Portuguese signature dish consisting of char-broiled Norwegian dry cod fish seasoned with olive oil and garlic, and a Portuguese take on bouillabaisse preserve the natural flavors of the fish and seafood. The wine list, with selections from Portugal, Chile and Spain among other regions, works well with the menu.
