A partnership between international hospitality veteran, Attila Gyulai (Elysian Hotel Chicago, Four Seasons) and up-and-coming executive chef Thai Dang (RIA, L2O, Zentan), Embeya is affectionately named after chef Thai's childhood nickname, Embeya, which means "little one" in Vietnamese. Embeya aims to creatively re-tool the ubiquitous Asian concept, developing dishes based on a range of Asian ingredients, flavors and textures integrated with French technique. Chef Thai will offer a progressive Asian menu in an approachably chic space, designed by 555 International lead designer Karen Herold (Girl and the goat, GT Fish, Balena). Spearheaded by beverage director Danielle Pizzutillo, the Embeya beverage program will be driven by the same approach and ethos behind the cuisine and space, carrying over techniques and flavors from the kitchen. Whether it's a cocktail crafted to order, or a perfectly paired wine from the Riesling-focused list, each drink is well balanced, layered, and delicate.

So I will admit, I happened on Embeya accidentally. 4 of us were facing a 2 hour wait at Avec, and it happened to be nearby and have a bar. I couldn't be more thrilled that this happened. After a couple sips of our drinks we asked to look at a menu and were instantly intrigued. Then food started coming out around us and we were hooked by the smells. We quickly canceled our plans and asked for a table. The food was amazing! I am a huge fan of bold flavors and Embeya delivers just that. We started out with a few small plates. The highlights were the papaya salad and the spring rolls. I have never had anything like the papaya salad, a must try. The garlic chicken was amazing for such a simple sounding dish, bold garlic flavors, a big hit at the table. The second entree we loved was the Rabbit Leg. We had several other items that were delicious. I could really gush about this meal for a while. Save room for dessert, we had several, but our favorite was the Cream Puff Top. I'm not sure exactly what made this up, but it was fantastic. I can't wait to make this a more regular place in our restaurant rotation. I am just embarrassed that I missed out for this long!
