Tango Grill Restaurant Review: Once an old-style Italian restaurant devoted to upscale traditional fare, this reliable Stamford spot has reinvented itself. It now represents a merging of classic Argentinean fare and tried and true Italian favorites, reflected in a menu highlighting the best of both countries. Brick walls, black leather and white tablecloths set the stage for an array of well-executed dishes. For a taste of Argentinean barbecue choose the churrasco, skirt steak seasoned with chimichurri sauce. Mendozino steak with eggs and french fries is another hearty option, and indicative of the protein-rich combinations typical of the cuisine. On the lighter side, the pan-seared Chilean sea bass is given a spicy treatment with the addition of Cognac sauce. A selection of al dente pastas, thinly sliced veal scaloppine, and an artfully prepared vegetarian napoleon (grilled yellow squash, green zucchini, roasted peppers, portobello mushrooms and fresh herbs) are other tasty options. Wine selections from Mendoza and Patagonia, as well as Italian varietals from Piedmonte and Veneto, provide good choices for pairings.
