Eliza's Restaurant Review

: Eliza's updates Hunan and Mandarin cuisine with a California twist but manages not to lose any of the hot, sweet or pungent flavors. Standards like kung pao chicken and Mongolian beef share billing with mango ostrich, Hunan lamb, and salmon with asparagus. The vegetable soup---a bowl full of fresh seasonal veggies in a peppery vegetable broth---makes a light and healthy starter. The ambience matches the food with dramatic vases of freshly cut flowers, giant decorative gourds, and impressionist-style paintings. The bar is a piece of artwork in itself---a meandering slab of clear Plexiglas featuring a three-dimensional blown-glass underwater world where cartoonish glass koi fish appear to be swimming through feathery purple and green kelp and bluish bubbles. With 30-plus lunch specials mostly under $5, Eliza's also proves that you don't have to drive up prices for a sleek interior and high-quality food. Service is efficient but a bit aloof.
