The former Yi Cuisine space (catty-corner from the Farmers Market at Fairfax and Third) quietly transformed into Celadon late last year (we're told December, but Hounds were tail-wagging as early as November); we'll call it a Med-Asian restaurant and lounge. The look was completely overhauled: the long outdoor patio/corridor is now a covered lounge with Chinese day beds and paper lanterns overhead; the dining room is lined with candles and filled with antiques and deeper hues; the chef's table is history. The press release tells us that executive chef Danny Elmaleh created an eclectic "small-plates" menu inspired by his Japanese, Isreali, and Moroccan heritage, and that he previously worked with Josiah Citrin at Melisse and Lemon Moon, and Beacon's chef, Kazuto Matsusaka.
