THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Le Lan Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Executive chef Bill Kim has left the restaurant, and Chad Sterling has moved into his role at this swanky, business-friendly spot. Price is a consideration at French-Vietnamese Le Lan (which means the orchid); luxury never comes cheaply, but when we are expected to shell out up to $15 for raw oysters with chili horseradish and mango ponzu and up to $29 for an entrée, lots of bells and whistles should go off. The good news is sometimes, they do. The flavors and complexity of many of the dishes often are quite striking, from the orange Hokkaido squash soup buoyed by pickled green papaya to spicy soba noodle salad with basil-seed vinaigrette. Follow-ups like poached duck dumplings in red curry-coconut emulsion keep the spirit alive, while mains like Bobwhite quail with foie gras and lemon grass sausage seem downright decadent. Feeling celebratory? Consider the six- or nine-course tasting menus.
