The drinks

The restaurant isn’t currently licensed, so for now a selection of hot and cold teas are available. Wong says a drink list of premium sakes and spirits will debut soon.

The space

The space, previously a Source Electronics store, was gutted, lined with banquettes and accented with wood and cool three-dimensional tiles. Wong plans to open a patio once the weather warms up.
