Tango Restaurant & Lounge

At the start of each new quarter at the University of Washington I would make it a point to treat myself with friends (or be treated by someone special on a date) to a delicious dinner at a restaurant I’d never been to before in Seattle.

These tasty outings were a way to indulge myself with good food and company before I had to confine myself to sleepless nights in the library once the quarter picked up (usually after the first week). They were also a way to celebrate a successful previous quarter… sort of like positive reinforcement conditioning.

One of the restaurants I was taken to on one of these outings was Tango restaurant and lounge on Pike Street on Capitol Hill. My date and I were having a caipirinha fetish and drank them all evening with a wonderful selection of latin influenced tapas. Our favorite tapa at Tango was the ‘cheap dates’ (bacon wrapped dates).

The mood was set with dim lighting and zesty, modern d├ęcor. A huge party was being accommodated at the time I visited and the waiters were extremely accommodating and patient with the loud/drunk guests. It was a fun evening and a perfect start to a new college quarter.
