For Executive Chef Kochi Chiba, preparing a dinner at Silk is easy as pie stuffed with crab meat, drizzled in berry ponzu sauce, and baked in a cloud of lightning. By focusing on traditional dishes from a variety of regions, Silk’s extensive menu gathers symphonies of savory spice alongside elegantly simple flavor profiles to accommodate a range of visiting palates. Sample one of Silk's Pan-Asian-style tapas plates such as Shanghai spring rolls—mixed veggies and seafood encased in a fried pastry shell with mango vinaigrette, ($6)—or a salt and pepper chicken wing served up Hong Kong style ($6). Silk also serves up adorable sliders for dainty handheld consumption, such as the tender marinated Kobe burger sliders ($12). Heartier dishes consist of noodle or fried rice dishes ($11–$15), sushi and sashimi dinners ($18–$40), or a variety of main plates featuring savory Korean beef short ribs ($24), a refreshing duo of diver scallops and shrimp with garlic butter ($22), and more.
The journey to Far East flavors begins in Silk's grand entranceway, adorned by streaming waterfalls flowing serenely unto the sensory receptors. Cozy round booths and other fine furniture adorn more than 5,000 square feet of dining space. Lifelong friends pull a chair up to Silk's elegant glass-backed bar as newfound lovers tuck away in the soft evening light, emerging only to dance under the stars or play Marco Polo in the waterfalls.
