This restaurant channels the nostalgia of Old Shanghai with its old-fashioned furnishings and classic regional cuisine. The dumplings are excellent, especially the steamed xiao long bao dumplings filled with tender pork and broth. Entrées include pork knuckle in sweet soy sauce, or braised meatballs (called “lion’s head”). For dessert, try the Shanghai staple: deep-fried egg white stuffed with banana and mashed red-bean paste.
