Michael Schulson and his chef de cuisine, Khamla Vongsakoun, have just finished putting some seasonally-inspired tweaks on the menu at Sampan. New additions include share-able, small and large plates that riff on seafood and summery flavors. Some highlights are lobster gazpacho with tomato, cucumber and mint oil; king crab satay with yuzu, mirin and charred pineapple; and lobster stir fry with egg noodle, bok choy and sesame. The food isn’t the only thing updated. Schulson and Vongsakoun have also revamped the restaurant’s cocktail menu, with Honey-Yuzu Chiller, Jack Daniels Tennessee honey whiskey with yuzu and soda; and Plum Tea, made with Finlandia vodka with plum oolong tea and mint.
