A three-floored building of the Ming Dynasty style is home to this restaurant, famously said to have hosted Bill Clinton and Fidel Castro. Rumor says that Chelsea Clinton had three helpings of a green bean and vegetable dish, while her presidential dad loved the sansi meimao pu stuffed pastry. Shanghainese cuisine is the specialty here, especially dim sum and dishes with crab or shark fin. Other seafood dishes may include prawns, eel, and the Yangcheng Hu crab, although the latter comes and goes with the season.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
