Lisa (Chen) Ko (ex-Charming Wok and Charming Cuisine) is behind this South Loop spot. The pan-Asian menu features far-flung choices like Peking duck with tamarind sauce, lemongrass marinated Vietnamese-style beef, Thai red curry, Japanese tempura, nigiri, sashimi and maki rolls, plus a create-your-own stir-fry option. Pick your vegetables, protein, sauce and noodles and chefs will whip up your custom creation. Fresh "fruitinis" are the drink of choice with options like Asian pear with sake and passion fruit laced with vodka. The minimalist space has a loungey vibe with slate and zebra wood floors and green bamboo walls.
