Tamari Restaurant & Lounge Restaurant Review: In trendy Lawrenceville, Tamari exudes cool, upbeat vibes. The restaurant fuses Asian and Latin flavors and attracts a broad demographic with its smart décor and mix of dining-entertainment options --- outdoor seating in the front courtyard, a second floor deck and cozy lounge with a downtown city view, a bustling drinks bar boasting hand-crafted cocktails and a slew of sakés, a sushi bar and a robata grill. Menu choices are equally flexible and varied: small plates, such as the signature tequila lime shrimp tacos; larger entrées like bulgogi (marinated Korean rib-eye) with house-made kimchi; skewered and grilled items from the wood-fired robata grill; and ceviche and specialty maki. For dessert, there's a spicy chocolate tart with dulce de leche and seasonal berry compote.
