The demolition of Bai Feng's much-loved No Name Bar is inevitable, but his charming new restaurant has some of its spirit. There are smart touches: Luminous inlaid stones, shimmering waterfalls, and maidenhair ferns create a soothing atmosphere. The minority-chic food is sublime; try the nongjia shao jian ji (spicy sautéed chicken fillet), which uses real bird's eye chile, or the delectable grilled lemon grass fish (daizu xiangmao cao kao yu), served wrapped in a lotus leaf. The finest dish is a juicy foil-wrapped beef marinated in mountain herbs (se shao niurou). A range of fresh juices nicely complement the spicy fare, and the bar still makes a mean gin and tonic.
