Azie In Media

Azie
Craig LaBan checks out the sexy Azie in downtown Media and finds it wanting.

Where is the restaurant that will finally put Media on the map as the next budding West Chester, Collingswood or Manayunk? By all logic, it should be Azie. This newcomer is such a stunningly designed contemporary space, and has such a pedigreed kitchen – “one of the world’s greatest Japanese chefs,” according to the press release – I wasn’t a bit surprised when the glowing propaganda started sizzling in my e-mail box.

But logic, I’ve since been reminded by a couple of less than stellar dinners here, doesn’t do the cooking.

    How many bells? It reads like one bell, but the sidebar normally attached to Laban’s review seems to be missing.

    I’ve been to Azie quite a few times and have received consistently good food there.
