Bao Bei Review

Start with an eclectic Chinatown storefront, stir in funky Asian-flavored cocktails, then add a creative take on traditional Chinese dishes, and you've got the recipe for this hip and happening hangout. Grab a drink while you wait—perhaps a Guizhou Donkey (lemongrass-infused shochu, almond syrup, lime, and ginger beer) or a Dan Dan Flip (Sichuan-spiced rum, vanilla, lime, and whole egg). Afterward you can load up your table with nibbles like Chinese pickles and truffled pork dumplings or tapas-size dishes like shao bing (sesame flatbread with cumin-scented lamb, pickled red onion, cilantro, and chilies), mantou (steamed buns stuffed with pork belly and preserved turnip), or a salad of wok-charred octopus, crispy potatoes, and cucumber kimchi. Old Chinatown may have been tasty, but it never cooked up anything this fun.
