With a young chef direct from The French Laundry -- where he ran the show for Thomas Keller, mind you -- this small but intensely original and refined Asian-American restaurant has established itself very quickly as one of the finest in America.
Modern haute cuisine, often interpretations of Chinese food, from faux shark fin to steamed dumpling. Each plate delights with a symphony of flavors and textures.
If you have a little money to burn, love Asian cuisine, or just want to experience some of the most exciting high-end cuisine in the city, this is your joint. Chef Corey Lee will blow your mind with his beautifully articulated dishes--the flavors, textures, and presentations are just beyond. Go for the wine pairing option--the staff has fun with it (you'll get beer, Madeira, and more).
