Those with a yen for the outdoors can dine alfresco in sunken pods set along the perimeter of a Zen-like reflection pond. The cuisine is dubbed trans-ethnic, but except for a puzzling inclusion of Italian-style pizzas, the menu could more accurately be called trans-Asian - with main stopovers in Bangkok, Hong Kong, and New Delhi. Kurobuta pork, Japan's prized pig, is lushly flavored and bathed in char sui, a Chinese barbecue sauce redolent of honey and five spices. Diver scallops stir-fried with spicy XO sauce is another winner, as is duck consommé with a chicken wing plumped full of shrimp mousse. The Restaurant does lots of things well but needs to iron out some irksome quirks, but this is the best and priciest Chinese restaurant in town.
