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. Snails sautéed in Cognac sauce over linguine is a pasta-based appetizer, while New Bedford squid is stuffed with shrimp and minced vegetables. Bacalhau, char-broiled Norwegian dry cod fish seasoned with olive oil and garlic, and a broiled seafood combination with grey sole, jumbo shrimp and sea scallops, are simply cooked and 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.
