Compared with the elaborate, sometimes clamorous restaurants that have been blooming up in museums all over town lately, this modest, lunch-only spot on the ground floor of the Asia Society on Park Avenue is a kind of oasis. Chances are you’ll find your table set under an actual tree in the soothing, atrium-like space, and as you nibble your shrimp dim sum, you can contemplate rock sculptures that look like they’ve been lifted from a Kyoto rock garden. The menu is Asian accented, of course, and includes decent facsimiles of old regional stand-bys like pad Thai, Malaysian sambal (over salmon), and a bountiful Japanese-style bento box, which you can complement with chocolate cremeaux pastries spiked with green tea for dessert.


Coffee, dessert, and small plates are served from 3:30 to 5 p.m., Tues.-Sun.
