2019 BIB GOURMAND REVIEW

"The kitchen turns out spicy and bold Southeast Asian dishes, most with a heavy Thai bent. Seared salmon in a pool of turmeric-tinged coconut milk is simply prepared but flavorful, while the pandan "ho ho" takes on the popular packaged snack cake with an Asian flair. Pandan-infused chiffon cake rolled around a coconut kaya frosting and encased in a white chocolate shell, this ho ho is anything but ho-hum."

The executive chef, who took over in March, said she thought about everything customers could possibly crave when drawing up the breakfast and lunch menus."

GOING OUT GUIDE REVIEW: DESTINATION WEDDING

"Skip the bubbles and say yes to the rickey-mojito hybrid (J Rickey) and the specially formulated gin and tonic (New Spanish Boyfriend). Added bonus: The draft station is gilded and shaped like a vintage-style suitcase."
