This place is a nice change from all the Chinese food places in Chinatown. It's pretty cozy inside with a nice L shaped bar. Exposed brick and wood beams...or were they iron? The food part of the menu is small, but I think that works. Do some things very well and you can change it accordingly. My favorite appetizer was the oxtail dumplings!! Tender beef in fresh pockets with some clover sprouts and grape tomatoes with a delicious soy sauce. Might as well order the Lucky Bowl, and it was a good size. The partner had the sandwich special which he said was really good!
A couple days later, we found ourselves wandering around Chinatown and decided to come in for some wine and the dumplings. Unfortunately, they don't serve the oxtail ones at lunch, so we had to settle for the Pork Belly Bao, which was very good, but I really had my heart set on those dumplings. We told the friendly bartender that it gave us all the more reason to come back. But....Lucky us!!!...I think the manager saw our disappointment and the chef made us two, on the house. Both went well with Rioja from Spain.
Great wine, friendly service, and delicious food! i love Lucky Belly...and so does my belly!
