THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Dd33 Asian Bistro Restaurant Review

: East meets West meets chic at this Asian-fusion bistro that, stylistically, could hold its own against bigger city eateries. Bamboo shoots up out of banquettes against a lacquer red wall and Andy Warhol-style artwork of “Terracotta” soldiers accent the space above the open kitchen. Even the guests sipping green MarTEAnis and beer flights in the lounge are pretty. But perhaps the most titillating eye-catchers here are found on the plates. Broiled Alaskan sablefish (white and meaty, like Chilean sea bass) waxed with a miso-honey glaze perches atop wasabi whipped potatoes and shiitake tips with the precision of a Chinese gymnast. Dishes such as sous vide short ribs spin the menu more French, less Asian. Those into neither land nor sea have a couple of vegetarian options. The restaurant’s name fuses the initials of owner David Du and his father-partner Dick Du (who owns several area Peking restaurants) and the difference in their ages. The elder’s experience complements the younger’s hip take on the pan-Asian in American pans theme. Coincidentally, there’s a yoga studio nearby, but we’d rather balance ourselves over wonton churros with molten chocolate dipping sauce.
