An intimate, jewel-like Chinese noodle shop, mian is a world unto itself of red glass tiles and natural reeds, designed according to feng-shui principles and coyly tucked behind a bronze screen. Chinese coins inserted into the countertop offer the rush of discovery for attentive guests. Globular lanterns glow from above the screen even afterhours.
