TriBeCa has been getting an elegant taste of Shanghai via this glossy restaurant, courtesy of Yiming Wang and Xian Zhang. Tucked into a landmarked neo-Flemish building, this is an upscale, uniquely charming dining room reimagined in dark wood and sea-foam walls. A handsome and full bar completes the scene. Building on the success of their popular one-starred restaurant, Café China, the cadre of cooks are focused here on Shanghai (and a bit of Huaiyang) cuisine. The menu is filled with delicate soups; tender shredded eel sautéed with chives; and a good assortment of dim sum. Maybe delicate bean curd sheets wrapped around shitake mushrooms; cold, smoked carp, Suzhou-style; or slow-braised pork with bamboo shoots, baby bok choy and bowtie shaped yuba?
