With a luxuriously expansive 7,000 square feet of space, Orchid welcomes diners to its warmly lit dining room to enjoy delicacies that take inspiration from countries such as Korea, Thailand, and China. The restaurant’s menu includes a broad selection of à la carte sushi and maki that delights mouths with succulent seafood such as pieces of king crab ($6.50) or unexpected combinations such as seared smoked salmon, shrimp tempura, and cream cheese ($12), with a blissful pairing of breakfast flavors with crunchy panko-breaded shrimp that blends naturally on the tongue without resorting to the use of fire to melt components together. Diners can tongue-tango with entrees including braised korean short ribs ($22), marinated in korean barbecue sauce atop white rice, or cut into a new york strip steak ($20), grilled with teriyaki and served with kabocha mashed potatoes. Filets of seared tuna ($19) swim in horseradish and teriyaki sauces, whereas Thai green curries ($14+) are rich with coconut milk and envy of all the dishes that diners lavished attention on before them.
