Lemon Basil Restaurant
Tucked into a green-painted building with mullioned windows and a brick-walled patio, Lemon Basil Restaurant is pretty as a postcard—specifically, one sent from an imaginary border between Thailand and Western Europe. Traditionalists can find pad thai and tom yum soup aplenty, but the kitchen has the most fun deploying fusion techniques. A perfectly Asian ensemble of seared sea scallops, shrimp, and mushrooms gets bathed in champagne cream sauce; roast duck can come decked in pomegranate, apple brandy, or raspberry sauce. Other dishes hail from no particular tradition save for a love of flavor, such as the ever-popular avocado blossom, which cradles crispy shrimp, mango, and a honey-lemon sauce in tender halves of avocado.
