E&O Restaurant Review

: When stylish E&O opened it set a new standard. Overnight it became the place to see and be seen. And though other venues, similar in feel and ambition, have debuted since then, E&O still packs them in. Minimally designed with an Asian feel, the dark walls and wooden floors make a suitable backdrop for the young and fashionable clientele. The good news is that the food remains as well-produced as ever. Up-to-the-minute dim sum --- chilli-salt squid, white pepper prawns, black cod and king prawn shu mai with pepper miso --- is served all day. Otherwise, it’s a mix of Chinese, Japanese and Thai dishes including curries, sashimi of an adventurous kind (try sea bass sashimi with yuzu and truffle oil or seafood ceviche), barbecue selections, salads and specials like whole crispy sea bass. Desserts run from house-made sorbets to vanilla and lemon grass crème brûlée. The wine list is fairly priced; the place buzzes and the staff is good. The downside is that it gets very busy, but you can always prop up the very cool bar while you’re waiting.
