My husband and I enjoyed the cocktails and small bites very much. There was one dumpling item which contained in essence French Onion soup. Get that! It’s to die for. The share plate of spare ribs tasted good but it was way over priced. Also...More

Thanks for stopping in while you were downtown. Be sure to check out our sister restaurant, Cho77, on South Broadway, too. They've got a Bacon Cheeseburger Shumai Dumpling – it sounds right up your alley. Hope to see you in soon.
