Dapur is the place to be when the scene over cuisine is what you crave. A chic waitstaff wearing heels and silk shantung sheaths and a dining room as elegant as orchid accents offer visuals that sate an appetite for style. No decorative detail is unattended, right down to backlit Asian antiques, a giant golden Buddha, and gossamer drapes that flutter in a breeze. A pair of twin speakers that would dwarf a small child pumps beats so loud they eclipse any chit chat, so best if you talk with your hands and your eyes. Despite a laundry list of grilled, crispy, and cold small plates, soups, sides, sushi rolls, and big plates, the menu at Dapur is a minefield. Instead, stick to sushi rolls or snacks such as edamame. The cocktail menu is ambitious, though their execution leaves something to be desired.
