Knowledgeable servers field menu queries with ease and thoroughness. The revamped menu offers a taste of a variety of Asian cuisines, from Executive Chef Bill Kim's (Charlie Trotter's, Trio) outstanding Korean-style sizzling short ribs to the deliciously chilled soy, balsamic reduction and basil oil-flavored Japanese soba noodles in the seafood salad. Passion fruit orange vinaigrette adds complexity to rich Asian squash dumplings served with smoked bacon and toasted garlic. The moist grouper filet, cooked in a banana leaf, is topped with a surprisingly mild but flavorful red Thai curry paste and a sprinkle of togarashi spice.
