AAA Inspector Notes
This acclaimed bistro incorporates fresh and local ingredients into a seasonally changing menu of creative Asian-influenced fare. The dumplings, whether the vegetarian or meat version, are a must-try. This place is renowned for its flavorful seafood, including shellfish, flounder, sea bass and catfish served as small plates and entrées. The tiny dining room is chic but unassuming and just dim enough that you'll want to keep your phone handy to illuminate the menu. The adjacent lounge offers a late-night menu of small plates, craft cocktails and a thoughtfully curated wine list.
