Went to Opera, a brightly colored Asian restaurant by Jerry Kleiner and others in the South Loop:
Fragrant Minced Chicken Song (Basil & Mint scented chicken in lettuce wrap)
Sweet Pea & Chantrelle Stir Fry (Truffle Oil & Golden Sand [aka roasted garlic - I had to ask])
and 2 Kaipong, steamed in a lotus leaf [a vegan rice dish, cooked with coconut milk, fresh lichi fruit, some sort of Chinese broccoli or a bok choy, and a wonderful mushroom, similar to chantrelle, but with a more evocative name. Wood something].
Bottle of Franus Zinfadel, and a leisurely meal, in the vault.

Pictures here, including this of the Kaipong.
