MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

New Yorkers know Mott St. as the bustling artery in the heart of Chinatown, but to Chicagoans the name connotes something off the beaten path. Inside the low-slung, stand-alone red structure, a chicken wire-caged pantry is stocked with jars of red pepper, black vinegar and other pungent edibles—all of which appear again in the food on your plate. Offerings at this hip haven crisscross the globe, melding diverse ingredients for an utterly unique dining experience. Shredded kohlrabi substitutes green papaya for a Thai-inspired salad tossed with candied shrimp, poached chicken and plenty of fresh herbs. Stuffed cabbage bears a Korean accent with tender chunks of slow-braised pork, tangy Napa cabbage kimchi and crunchy sticky rice.
