THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Seabar Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAS BECOME ADCB This is the casual counterpart (as casual as it gets in the ultra-hip Mondrian) to the celeb-touted Asia de Cuba dining room. The white-on-white Philippe Stark interiors are perfectly complement the minimalist, sushi-based cuisine. In the latest hipster trend, diners share one long, slab table spanning the length of the hotel lobby. Specialties include a lengthy drink list offering multiple twists on the martini and Champagne cocktail, as well as an inspired sparkling sangria and full saké list. The menu offers traditional sushi and sashimi choices, as well as creatively kitsch dishes like a Japanese Elvis roll stuffed with smoked eel and banana tempura. Although flavor is bountiful in such dishes as fire and ice (sushi-grade ahi in a citrus-coconut marinade with plantain chips), we have to admit we find the combination of cold metal chairs, cold marble table, cold white interiors and cold cuisine a little, well...cold.
