Deep within the banking and business district, Tao’s seem a bit like an oasis, with elegant Asian-inspired dining rooms and lush candlelit patio gardens. The seductive menu merges East and West, adding imaginative twists to traditional dishes: try the Asian-style paella, with a filet of sea bass; salmon teriyaki served on a hot stone with chili; or the wasabi risotto to get your taste buds tingling. Be sure to save room for a mouth-watering dessert: the eye-popping "Tao Monolith" has 15 different exotic fruits and mousses. After dinner, Tao’s morphs into a sophisticated lounge and club.
