THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Mango Restaurant Review

: The Calvo family ran four restaurants in Peru before coming to St. Louis, where they operated a catering company before launching Mango. Their experience shows. The décor is warm and service is helpful and patient. Wise diners start with a pisco sour, the national cocktail. Even those unfamiliar with Peruvian cuisine will recognize empanadas and ceviche as first courses---and they’re first-rate---but go beyond them and the true fun begins. Entrées reveal Jorge Calvo has a deft hand when it comes to seafood, and there's a seco de carne flank steak that's actually moist and full of flavor. Not surprisingly, almost all mains come with potatoes, a natural for a nation that has been growing them for so long. The dessert list has the usual flan, but we'd encourage trying the pionono, a rolled sponge cake with caramel, or the Calvo family recipe chocolate cake. The fairly short wine list includes very reasonably priced South American options; the cocktail menu incorporates lots of rum and tequila.
