Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: Dining at this Tommy Bahama location has the feel of convenience. The retail operation is located on the ground floor while the restaurant sits above overlooking the posh storefronts of El Paseo. So is it the dining that's an afterthought or the shopping? The island-inspired menu includes some rather tasty jerk chicken tacos with mango salsa, avocado, Asian slaw and plantains that are crisp and flavorful. Try the coconut shrimp, which makes for a shareable plate. For dinner, options include chicken, pork, pasta, beef and seafood. Taste the lemon grass-encrusted ahi, seared rare and served with shiitake mushrooms, baby bok choy, almond rice and a sweet chili mustard sauce; finish with a piña colada cake for dessert. The bar scene can be fun with imbibers sipping classic rum drinks. If you spill anything on your shirt you can always buy a new one downstairs.
