Fodor's Review

With its white onyx bar illuminated a Curaçao blue and its walls awash in flowing voile, this ultracool space—a sophisticated upstairs cousin to the Boarding House—would seem right at home in South Beach. The cushy white-leather banquettes tucked behind the aquarium are the power seats. Executive chef Seth Raynor has great enthusiasm for the bold flavors of Asian cuisine, especially in its streetwise guise. You may have a tough time choosing between the beef barbecue with piquant Thai chili-lime sauce and the signature wok-fried lobster—so do yourself a favor and order both. Asian-themed restaurants often disappoint in the dessert round, but not so here. Pace yourself for some esoteric dazzlers such as the mascarpone-and-chèvre cheesecake with cherry syrup and beet sorbet.
