THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Celadon Restaurant Review

: This modern-looking restaurant lies a few steps below street level, so it seems cozy and den-like. The decor, whimsical and awash in glistening glass, lends an upscale feel to the dark and romantic atmosphere. The cooking brings together the cuisines of Japan and Korea, often-uneasy political bedfellows. Most main dishes come with a collection of Korean snacks, including delectable miniature pancakes made from mung beans, kim chee, and other spicy nibbles. Grilled squid rings in a teriyaki sauce make for a good starter, and the sushi is always reliably fresh. We’re enormously fond of grilled duck glazed with honey sauce. And, in keeping with Japan’s love of beef, Celadon serves a substantial slab of prime rib grilled with a sweet wine and soy sauce. Vegetarians will relish a tofu and vegetable stew, tastier than it sounds. The cooking at Celadon is country-style, which is to say hearty and simple; you won’t find the exquisite or precious aesthetics of Zen minimalism.
