Orchid’s 7,000 square feet of sleek feasting space invites diners to sample a smorgasbord of contemporary pan-Asian cuisine featuring fresh sushi, hearty Korean barbecue, sweet Thai curries, and more. Entrees such as the braised Korean short ribs ($22) and the Thai green curry with shrimp ($16) detonate saucy taste explosions along thin red lip lines. Chlorophyll-friendly options include the vegetarian dinner plate ($15), a meatless medley of tofu steak, seaweed salad, kabocha mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables glazed in a miso-teriyaki sauce. For professional chopstick twirlers, Orchid offers an expansive selection of specialty sushi, including Crunch Melt, with shrimp tempura, cream cheese, and melted mozzarella, drizzled with unagi sauce ($14), and Salmon Obsession, a savory mix of fried and fresh salmon ($16) named in honor of Calvin Klein's best-selling portable grill.
Growing up in his parent’s Chinese restaurant in South Korea, Bruce Liou learned to craft noodles by hand at the age of 12. A decade after moving to the US, he and his wife Marsha opened Singapore Grill, building a menu inspired by his travels to Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand, and the space station owned by Nicolas Cage. Diners seated next to a potted palm tree can sample 12 types of steak, dig into beef stir-fry and pineapple fried rice, pick from a roster of 11 specialty sushi rolls, and play slot and poker machines.
