Fill up on Mandarin and Shanghainese specialties at this Chinatown spot. You'll find all the usual suspects, including Peking duck, pork-filled steamed dumplings and sweet-and-sour pork, as well as more adventurous choices such as eel sauteed with bamboo shoots and greens; preserved pickles and bamboo shoots with rice cake; and xiao long bao, meat-and-broth-filled dumplings. The clientele is diverse; expect to see everyone from Chinatown locals to twentysomething hipsters in the classy-casual updated dining room.
