Pacific Spice’s friendly staff members guide patrons through a multicultural menu, sending diners hurtling mouthfirst through the varying cuisines of Japan, China, and Thailand. Groups of four or six searching for a dinner that's more entertaining than a kleptomaniac with a hole in his pocket can sample the theatrical steaming hibachi dinner. Tableside experiences begin with a round of shrimp appetizers and salads. Single-protein entrees such as salmon fillet offer concentrated flavor, and combination platters of filet mignon, shrimp, scallop, and lobster tail hit all of the different taste receptors—sweet, salty, meaty, and lobster. All entrees stick triple-axel landings onto waiting plates to the delight of hibachi vegetables, steamed or fried rice, and an array of ecstatic dipping sauces.
The chefs at Mango's Sushi and Sports Bar delicately coil up sushi rolls and sauté entrees on hibachi grills. They fill the menu with salmon, asparagus, spicy scallop, and crabmeat rolls, as well as entrees such as chicken fried rice, teppan-style steak and shrimp, and teriyaki chicken wings.
Away from the stadium lights and pyrotechnic touchdown dances glimmering from the bar's flat-screen televisions, delicate glass pendant lamps hang over the sushi bar, where patrons can pull up a stool to sip on fruit-infused sakes and watch the chefs at work.
Games of Keno or Texas hold'em add a bit of risk to a night at Locals Bar & Grill—unlike the menu of comfort-food classics, such as hand-cut fries piled next to similarly handcrafted burgers. Ten-inch personal pizzas come with custom toppings that range from bacon to banana peppers. Chicken wings are served by the pound and are also customizable, featuring lemon-pepper, honey-barbecue, and other sauces. Tacos, nachos supreme, deviled eggs, and homemade chili round out the menu.
