STEEPED IN the pas­sion of restau­ra­teur/force-of-na­ture Re­becca Roth Gullo—who also owns The Gal­lows and Black­bird Dough­nuts—Banyan Bar + Refuge hand­somely ful­fills the prom­ise of its own billing as a “mod­ern Asian gas­tropub.” An easy pirou­ette round the corner from the Bos­ton Bal­let on Claren­don Street in the South End, the spa­cious first-floor walkup sets its tone with an artful ar­range­ment of tiki, twigs and pa­per lanterns that play­fully tick­les the belly of Zen. The menu fea­tures a great range of veggie op­tions, and there are fla­vor de­lights through­out: We es­pe­cially rec­om­mend the roasted car­rots with tahini yo­gurt and the crumbly lime ice cream sand­wich for dessert, which comes with a for­tune cookie. The drink se­lec­tion is out­stand­ing, from the Slove­nian Pul­lus pinot gri­gio to the lo­cal Night Shift Whirlpool Pale Ale. 553 Tre­mont St., 617.556.4211.
