Dragonfly, Sacramento

Checked out Dragonfly last night -- the trendy pan-Asian place next door to the always-mobbed Zocalo.

Atmosphere was trendy Asian...minimalist fireplace... low lighting, lots of candles...and of course the requisite big-screen plasma TV at the bar -- bane of my life as the spouse of a sports addict.

We weren't very hungry and had to rush to catch a show, so didn't have a chance to do a thorough job vetting the menu... the two of us ended up ordering three dishes:
- Spicy ahi tuna in sesame cones -- two are included to an order. A fun appetizer. The order contains an ample scoop of raw ahi with a touch of spice in a crunchy "cone" made of sesame. Fortunately there was no creamy sauce drizzled on it.
- Salad with blackened salmon. The salmon was wonderfully prepared -- perfectly undercooked in the middle, nice crunchy exterior.
- Thai noodles with chicken in a garlic sauce. OK, nothing special.
The menu seemed designed for noshing with drinks -- lots of small dishes, salads, noodle dishes, etc. Big drinks menu. There is a small set of entrees, including several fish dishes that sounded good. The sushi menu included only Big Rolls With Tons of Stuff on Them (or sashimi), no nigiri.

I'd be interested in hearing from others on this place. After having the salmon, which was good, I'm wondering if the fish entrees are worth going back for.
