Restaurant Details

The concept behind Wahso is Shanghai in the 1930s, all Art Deco and Victorian, with imported Asian screens, an ebony fireplace, private dining rooms reminiscent of Orient Express sleeper cars … in other words, an eye-popping restaurant, filled with a collection of Asian artifacts from around the world. Amazingly, the food at Wahso manages to match the lofty ambience. Make a light meal out of selections from the Asian tapas menu, such as ahi tuna and mango tartare or Mekong Delta-style mussels. More substantial entrees include shallot- and thyme-roasted scallops, South Indian “Batata Bhaji” chicken, and Korean barbecued salmon. Of course, a selection from Wahso’s incredible wine and drink list won’t hurt. Sip some top-shelf sake, a fun wine flight like “Gone Sideways,” or a signature cocktail such as the Green Tea Energizer. And, if you’re in the mood for romance, request the table known affectionately as “the love shack.”
