Is it Versailles or is it... Steven Starr's Buddakan? Not content just to open the doors at Iron Chef Morimoto's new digs on Lower Tenth Avenue, the Philadelphia restaurateur is about to christen Buddakan, an even more opulent pan-Asian newcomer just a few blocks north in NoMeat (Northern Meatpacking, kids). Eater photographer Noah Kalina somehow slipped inside and returns with a portfolio of the insanity. Promises Eater, "These are the first of 11 photos of the Buddakan interior we'll be showing you today. We do hope you'll clear your schedule, as it is going to be quite a ride."
