Impressive Decor and Trendy Scene
I have out of town visitors that have requested a trendy scene with fun/impressive decor. They specifically mentioned Tao (I'm not a huge fan) and they have already been to Buddha Bar and Buddakan. Any suggestions for something that fits these criterion and are asian or american cuisines?
You can try Megu or Morimoto for Japanese. Food is ok at both.
For American I guess Wild Salmon is supposed to be impressive. I haven't been there so can't attest for the food.
Spice Market, Sapa, Chinatown Brasserie. I've eaten at Spice Market and Sapa and both are fine for what you are looking for. I think Sapa has a more limited and more expensive menu than the other two but the space is beautiful.
