Embeya aims to creatively retool the ubiquitous Asian concept. Developing dishes based on a range of Asian ingredients, flavors and textures integrated with traditional French technique. Chef Thai will offer a progressive Asian menu in a casual, energetic space designed by 555 International, and will serve as a destination restaurant as well as a neighborhood hub. <br /><br><br><br />Embeya takes its name from the Vietnamese word "em bé," which means "little one" and was Chef Thai's nickname growing up as the youngest of ten children. Drawing inspiration from both his Vietnamese upbringing and his travels across Asia, Chef Thai offers an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary takes on Asian cuisine. <br /><br><br><br />Embeya, the partnership between hospitality veteran Attila Gyulai (former director of operations at the Elysian Hotel Chicago, Four Seasons) and up-and-coming executive chef Thai Dang (RIA, L2O, Zentan), is located at 564 W. Randolph in Chicago's West Loop.
