Foursquare Tips

  • If the name didnt tip you off, theres a terrace attached to this upscale Chinese restaurant and lounge (and a mighty nice rooftop one at that).
  • This Asian-inspired bar is a great escape from the bustle of the windy city.
  • Come for the dim sum lunch!
  • Love the Shanghai Lemonade cocktail...refreshing!!!
  • You can also order the shanghai menu up in The Bar!
  • wonton noodle soup, duck fried rice, string beans
  • If you happen to go here, get the fois gras and lobster dumplings. They are really good. Overall, this place doesn't deserve the attention even though terrace is nice.
  • Everything is delicious. Amazing view during summer day on terrace.
  • Monk Jumps over the Wall: abalone, fresh scallops, dried scallops, shrimps, mushrooms, baby bok choy, in an herbal abalone broth. Even a meditating monk will jump over a wall for it.
  • Ordering the peking duck here is an elegant experience. Though not carved tableside, the meat is laid out in strips, topped with skin so crisp it might cut you.
  • I recommend the Peking Duck 3 course meal. It's very good.
  • Start with tofu appetizer and half a Peking duck. Then beef tenderloin, Kung pao chicken and lo Mein noodles. For dessert go down to Pierrot.
  • The outdoor terrace portion of this restaurant is open and spacious, with various kind of seating options, from traditional tables to lounge-y nooks.
  • Start with BBQ pork dumplings and crispy tofu ( yes tofu). Then beef tenderloin and Kung pao chicken. Any fish dish also works.
  • Foie gras and duck dumplings are excellent! My ultimate fav!
  • Food was ok and pricey. I think I would rather eat at The Lobby. Service was great though.
  • Genuinely gave me an immediate pang of longing for Hong Kong...the flavors and the service really reminded me of some of my fave spots in Central and Causeway Bay.
  • The menu is steeped in traditionexcellent dumplings and exemplary birds nest soupbut flexible enough to offer new classics such as garlic lobster with cheong fun and wok-seared beef tenderloin.
  • Experience authentic Chinese cuisine during summer months for lunch, cocktails and dinner seven days a week.
  • Be treated like royalty with dishes to complement the experience, can never go wrong with this wonderful restaurant
