Small plates. Big drink. From the chef who brought modern Japanese food (Pod) to Penn, and Buddakan to Manhattan, this flashy modern eatery aims at a wow a minute, via "cheesesteak" bao buns, crab wonton tacos, truffled edamame dumplings, wok-roasted broccoli, spicy sashimi, (absolutely heavenly) crispy Brussels sprouts—and a $24 "scorpion" (fish)bowl containing a fruity and fearsome mix of booze and juice to share. Another reason to visit: The colorful alfresco "graffiti bar" out back.
