Hot Dish: Gecko's Tuna Nachos

By Judi Gallagher Photography by Kathryn Brass July 1, 2012

GECKO’S TUNA NACHOS (KATHRYN BRASS)I doubted that a sports bar could serve good ahi tuna, but I ate my words. Nested in house-made crisp wontons, sesame-crusted slices of rare ahi tuna are topped with seasoned seaweed salad and a creamy wasabi sauce. This Asian version outclasses traditional nachos, and is delicate enough to enjoy with a chilled glass of pinot grigio.

Gecko’s has five locations; we like the one at 1900 Hillview St. for its great outdoor space for doggie dining. (941) 953-2929.
