Fodor's Review

This post office–turned–stylish restaurant is presided over by a 10-foot-tall gilded Buddha who seems to approve of the sake cocktails and the fusion food that pairs Asian ingredients with various cooking styles. The edamame ravioli appetizer and chocolate bento-box dessert are tasty, but most of the appeal is in the theatrical decor and people-watching also in evidence at Buddakan's outposts in New York City and Atlantic City. A long "community table" provides an opportunity to dine with anyone else fortunate enough to snag this center-stage space. Be prepared for a loud and lively atmosphere as the evening wears on.
