While you can get American-style Chinese food at this lovely modern spot, we suggest you order from the Hometown Highlights section, which features specialties from the area around Shanghai—a cuisine highlighted by slow braises and complex flavors. Bite a hole in the Juicy Pork Bao to pour in some of the savory vinegar-ginger sauce before slurping it up, or try the Tofu with Crabmeat, which is silky, rich, and unctuous.
