This eatery, which is from the folks behind NYC spots like Spice, Sea and Peep and Lakeview's Sura, is now open in the Ogilvie Transportation Center. Don't take its train station location to mean food court grub; this street level restaurant offers full-service dining, and they have a liquor license. The menu favors Thai dishes, but there's a lineup of sushi, sashimi and maki. Rolls include the typical dragon and California, plus more innovative choices like the cherry blossom with shrimp tempura, asparagus, tobiko, avocado, scallions, pink mame nori and spicy sauce. The lunch menu features classics like tom yum soup, panang curry and pad Thai, plus specialties like crab meat fried rice and open-faced ravioli with shrimp and squid in sweet soy vinaigrette. Dinner selections include Peking-style roast duck and orange-glazed salmon with avocado and Thai salsa.
