Chef Patricia Yeo cut her teeth working alongside Bobby Flay before turning her attention to Southeast Asian cuisine, and, eventually, to Om Restaurant in Harvard Square. The elaborate, 4,000-square-foot, bi-level space is dotted with plush lounge chairs, Buddhist statues, and Tibetan "Thangka" murals. The menu runs the gamut from crab rangoon to pork belly to soy ginger steamed cod. An extensive list of specialty cocktails is also served. Brunch features traditional American dishes like French toast and steak and eggs.
AS FEATURED IN...
From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
The glamorous Isetan department store’s <em>depachika</em> (basement food-floor) recently underwent a massive renovation, resulting in a gorgeous new array of food stands, chef’s counters and covetable ingredients. In addition to new outposts from celebrity chef Alain Ducasse and deluxe French cheese shop Marie-Anne Cantin, the floor now houses Omotenashi BAR, which serves <em>nihonshu</em> (the Japanese word for what Americans call sake) paired with small plates. The menu changes frequently and showcases dishes inspired by renowned Japanese restaurants.
We loved: Sake-friendly dishes based on specialties from , a restaurant in Kyoto.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
