I know what you’re thinking: “I’ve discovered so many wonderful new Chinese places in the last few years I don’t need another one.” Well, you are wrong. This place looks too yuppy and draws a business crowd for lunch. But many of the dishes on their Chinese menu — which you must ask for separately — are petty good. Get the chicken with three peppers, and then experiment on the Chinese menu. Their non-special dishes are often above average, too. The menu has some Thai and Japanese items as well. Plus they have a piano, with occasional performances of, get this, operatic arias.

    Some chinese friends (Beijingers) invited us there for lunch this past Sunday. They ordered off the “Chinese food for Chinese people” menu.
    The standouts were:
    -A ribs dish
    -A pork belly dish
    -A fish in black bean sauce dish
    -Baby Ba Choy (Bok Choy)
    INCREDIBLY good.
    I will attempt to get back myself and snag a carry-out menu…or the menu for the Chinese folk…and try to elaborate on the items we had.
    But I will DEFINITELY be back. The food was GOOD.
