Sad as we were to see Burmese pioneer Nan Yang go, Osmanthus ably takes up the Asian charge under the direction of chef Julia Klein, formerly of Terra in St. Helena, and owner Michael Chiang. Chinese, Japanese, and South-East Asian regional influences appear in this selective California-Asian menu that presents nicely defined raw, warm, noodle, and rice dishes. For instance, the tuna tartare gets a lift from ginger, soy, lime, and avocado, and the honey-sirracha adds sweet heat to the Brussels sprouts, giving both a distinct flair. Asian-inspired cocktails, and an intimate beer, wine, and spirits selection add an upscale feel to this stylish, spruced up addition to Rockridge. Serves lunch and dinner Tue.–Sat.
