This past February, famed Chef Patricia Yeo took the helm at Om Restaurant and Lounge's kitchens and rehauled the menus. Having been a fan of Patricia’s since her days in NYC at Sapa (where I was a regular due to yummy seafood dishes, unpretentious atmosphere, and its close proximity to my apartment), I was excited to see what she could bring to the table when I revisited Om last week during a media luncheon to showcase its new offerings.
I started out with a highly refreshing and tangy lychee and muddled lime mocktail (on the left), which right off the bat put me into a good mood. As the appetizers started arriving at our table, I could already tell that things had changed for the better since Patricia’s arrival. Gone were the unmemorable and blandish dished that never quite fit with the Asian-themed Om; in its place now stood actual Asian dishes inspired by Chef Yeo’s travels to the East (as well as her own Asian culture). I recommend the Miso Glazed Copper River Salmon garnished with bean sprouts, cucumbers, and jicama – clean, refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day.
