121 North Main Street
The best way to experience John Elkhay's sexy, shoebox-sized Asian restaurant is to head straight for the bar or upstairs lounge for cocktails and small plates. Beverage manager Ted Newcomer has created an impressive lineup of Chinese remedies, served in--brace yourself--foot-high martini glasses and made using exotic juices and syrups from fruits like kumquat mangosteen, lychee and yuzu. Those who prefer Asia's booze over its fruit will enjoy the refreshing M.S.G. Mojito, which swaps soju for rum, and the Geisha Girl, made with Wokka Saki vodka and a splash of sparkling sake. Pucker up.
