      I agree with Chin-Chin. Have the dumpling appetizer, it is delicious and light.

    2. I've heard great things about Rosanjin for Japanese. For Chinese, I like Our Place. Mr. K's and Shun Lee have both been disappointments.

        Shun Lee W enjoys a pretty good reputation
        Asiate in the Mandarin Oriental (French-Japanese)

      2. Fusion Asian - Buddakan
        Fusion Japanese - Morimoto (only for the ultimate omakase)
        Quasi-authentic Chinese - Chinatown Brasserie
        Traditional Japanese (sushi and kaiseki) - Masa, Sugiyama, 15 East (well, semi-traditional)
        Indian - Devi (wait till they re-open), Tamarind
        Not sure about Korea.
        Kittchitai is supposed to be fine-dining Thai, but I wasn't impressed with the food.

        1. I recently had lunch at Chinatown Brasserie on Lafayette Street and really enjoyed it. The room is beautiful and the staff couldn't have been nicer.
