Ran Duan is doing for this Brookline Village outpost what he did for his family’s other Sichuan Garden restaurant in Woburn: sexing it up with the kind of gorgeous, witty craft cocktails and Tiki-inspired drinks that brought him international acclaim. But don’t overlook the sensational traditional Sichuan fare served here, with its bold, fierce flavors of blazing chilies and numbing Sichuan pepper, rounded out with American-Chinese classics like General Tso’s for non-fire-eaters. It’s a mala bombshell.
