THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Opium Restaurant Review

: Whether you’re taking part in, or just taking in the action, Opium is a feast for the senses. The eclectic décor is striking, a fusion of pre-World War II Shanghai decadence and today’s SoBe trendiness. Translation: Bamboo trees and a slanted bamboo ceiling, industrial beams, Eastern artifacts, hoards of red lights, track lights, spotlights, projected lights, and candles---all that lighting and still a dimly lit room. It can be romantic, provocative, a wild night out, all depending on what you’re looking for. The Eurochic crowd, dressed mostly in black, come for the scene, not the cuisine. But the kitchen takes their Pan Asian fare quite seriously. Translation: Sushi and sashimi come freshly sliced and dazzlingly arranged; mostly Thai entrées, such as red curry chicken, pad Thai and crispy snapper with chili sauce are as good---if a little more costly---than in your favorite neighborhood Asian eatery. Dessert? Chilled lychee with almond milk pudding or spiced apple tempura with red bean ice cream are tempters.
