MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Owner Jason Vincent is responsible for this wonderful and enjoyable Chinese American throwback. Inside the colorful dining room, discover oceanic hues, vibrant artwork, and plush cushions. Surrounding the U-shaped bar is a larger area filled with proper tables that are perfect for groups, while a semi-private nook proffers family-style plates.

Nostalgia is at the forefront of this concise menu. Classics, like shrimp chips and crab Rangoon make an appearance, but diners shouldn't miss out on those luscious dan dan noodles or "Special Combo" fried rice, studded with cubes of pork, shrimp, and so much more. String beans with broad bean purée and a bone-in pork shank with black bean sauce along with charred cabbage are termed "specials" for good reason.
