This noisy, high-ceilinged, all-marble, banker-heavy place would be a lot more offensive if the food weren’t so good. A plate of pepper-crusted rare tuna slices isn’t the most inventive dish, but the fish is just-off-the-boat fresh and skillfully prepared. The same is true of tender tamarind-glazed pork loin and spicy beef dumplings. Everything is sized for sharing, and no one will go hungry. But at these prices, the tab can add up quickly. Unless you’re on company plastic, as most diners here seem to be, you’ll leave with a lot less green.
