Young Chefs' Big Bets I & II

 

continued

Next door to the Grange, a large transformation that took place very quietly over the last year was unveiled in April, when Pacific Rim moved into the former Ehnis & Sons store, doubling its footprint and increasing its seating from fifty-five to 105.

Owner Duc Tang designed the new space himself. It features a bar with its own menu that's open a few hours later than the dining room, a private dining room that can be closed off, and, finally, an ADA-compliant bathroom. All the booths--in the new space and the old--are now made from bamboo wood, as is the bar.

Tang built many of the booths himself. Woodworking is "a hobby I picked up over the years," he says. "It's like cooking--I love the physicality of working with my hands, and the creativity."

Pacific Rim, 114 W. Liberty. 662-9303. Mon-Thurs. 5:30-9:30 p.m. (bar open until 11 p.m.), Fri. & Sat. 5:30-10:30 p.m. (bar open until midnight), Sun. 5-9 p.m. pacificrimbykana.com
