MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Thank Chef Yuchun Cheung for brightening Murray Hill by way of authentic regional dishes from China, with an emphasis on Shanghai. This cooking is accomplished, serious and high quality, but one could still make a very enjoyable meal by just focusing on appetizers and dumplings alone. Signatures, and fittingly so, include toothsome slices of pig’s ear seasoned with chili oil, peppercorns and cilantro for freshness. Also explore dim sum, featuring pork- and crab-soup dumplings or caramelized, juicy and puffy pork buns. The Chinese sausage fried rice is a fragrant and wholly delicious treat.

The attractive interior is festooned with wood furniture, dark walls, cozy lighting and a small bar up front. Younger crowds lend the space a lively appeal.
