THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Purple Orchid Restaurant Review

: Long before fusion cooking fired our collective stoves, chef Richard Wong was serving up tempting fare that combined French and Asian traditions. The restaurant's Inner Harbor digs in Scarlett Place do not reflect that combination----there's a somewhat corporate dressing of deep green and mauve, with a fountain here and a mirrored wall there. The menu illustrates chef Wong's way with subtle flavors and stylish plating. Trois Poissons napoleon-style pulls three filets into a tower stacked with yam chips over a lemon-lime beurre blanc. Pan-seared tuna with fresh mango salsa is another good bet. For an Asian experience, try the gorgeous stir-fried prawns in orange-plum sauce served with fresh asparagus, or the Hong Kong-style seafood Neptune in oyster sauce over angel hair pasta. A visit to the sushi bar is also an option. All is artfully plated and attentively served.
