Nectar

Updated after a recent revisit

This high-style pan-Asian palace is more now than just "the Buddakan of the burbs" in large part due to talented Patrick Feury.

A splendid recent meal featured crispy lobster dumplings and achingly good steamed pork buns, reaffirming Nectar as that rare impressive combo of substance and style.

This high-style pan-Asian palace draws scene-makers and serious eaters alike. The French-Asian menu from former Susanna Foo chef Patrick Feury is still being fine-tuned (as is the service), but the restaurant is one of the best.

MENU HIGHLIGHTS

Sushi: lobster roll; steak tartare roll; marinated tuna sashimi. Cooked menu: foie gras; celery-pear soup; monkfish with curried cauliflower; striped bass with mushrooms; grilled tuna; squab with chanterelles; venison with chestnut puree; quince strudel.
