The Tropicale Restaurant & Coral Seas Lounge Restaurant Review: Located in a brightly colored building, this popular restaurant and bar has a stylish and modern interior and an expansive patio. Taking a cue from Mother Nature, chef Tony Di Lembo updates the menu seasonally. Cuisine is light and exotic, with an emphasis on Pacific Rim specialties, from Chilean sea bass to Thai shrimp curry and a rather tasty Kahlúa-barbecued pork chop. There are tapas, salads and gourmet pizzas as well. It’s maybe a little too much variety, but all is well executed, as evidenced by the Brussels sprouts, which are slightly charred and paired with chopped bacon and grilled caper berries. Cocktails can be refreshing, if not creative, with spicy mojitos and Moscow Mules. As the evening grows older, the crowd becomes younger and louder, making for a festive night if you're in the mood to party.
