My first experience at Tangerine was less than stellar- we showed up on a Sunday night and were turned away at the door since there wasn't a table available. The hostess absolutely refused to let us wait. odd. Still, since I'd heard rave reviews about the place, I tried again with better success.
Tangerine serves an array of Asian-fusion dishes that are both creative and tasty. Especially memorable was the appetizer of ahi tuna, sandwiched between fried wonton wrappers and seasoned with a wasabi aioli. I also loved their fresh bread with the array of dipping sauces. My boyfriend disliked the Asian Seafood Gumbo as the seafood didn't taste fresh. My entree of the coriander beef short ribs was delicious and is highly recommend.
Prices range from wonderfully low to mid-range, with the most expensive entree (steak) topping off at $21.
It's especially worth your money if you visit on a weeknight and take advantage of their specials.
