Just ok. More flash than substance. – Service was ok. The appetizers were wonderful (lobster and crab wontons). They hit a home run with these. The sauces that accompied them were fantastic.
The entrees were just bad. The scallops and truffle ravoli were good, but not great. The scallops were undercooked for my taste, and were gritty on the outside. The haddock dish was awful. They put hot sauce all over the plate and it just didn't belong. The red and green pepper risoto tasted like something out of a box.
Upscale U City hot spot caters to trendy Loop patrons with sturdy but erratic Asian-fusion cuisine. – In Short
This one-room restaurant is bright and sparse, with tables more suited for people-watching than intimate conversation. The seasonal Asian-fusion menu includes a delicious Thai mussels starter and a perfect chicken breast with house-made wild mushroom ravioli. Other dishes--cold crab Rangoon Napoleon; undercooked honey- and coriander-glazed duck--fare less well. The creme brulee sampler, with varieties including Thai-basil lemongrass and toasted sesame, makes a satisfying finish. The young waitstaff seems burdened by its duties.
