Stylish doesn’t even begin to describe the aesthetic at this long-running Boystown favorite. The only decoration in this art gallery–esque room is the tricked-out, fashionista-boy servers. The pan-Asian fare is just as stylish, but thankfully more complex. The lettuce cups pair spicy chicken with ginger, peanuts and a spark of lime for a dish with perfect synergy of flavor. Other good bets include the golden calamari, gently spiced with chilies, and a perfectly tender Chilean sea bass in a soy-Riesling sauce. You can BYOB, but there’s a full bar if you forget.
