Douro Restaurant Review

: Douro’s Portuguese and Mediterranean menu features subtly different takes on tapas standards, as in the chicken falafel with tahini, which uses elements of Middle Eastern and African flavors. A mezze platter consisting of cod bolinhos, chicken rissios, grilled chourico and marinated olives for two people provides a nice introduction to the flavors of these two regions. Paellas are the restaurant's specialty. The marisco version, with shrimp, calamari, little neck clams, chourico, peas and cilantro on saffron rice, will satisfy those craving authenticity, while the spicy Louisiana recipe comprises shrimp, linguiça, roasted peppers, peas, cilantro and a spicy Cajun saffron rice. The wine list, featuring regional reds and whites, works well with the menu --- try one of the refreshingly light white wines with the seafood, and opt for a bolder red to enhance the spicier dishes. Finish with affogato; lemon gelato topped with crumbled biscotti drenched in a shot of espresso; or pipocas, rich Valrhona dark chocolate-coated popcorn and toasted coconut flakes drizzled with caramel.
