This restaurant is what Shànghǎi is all about: brash, bustling and just a little tacky. The owner is the son of a New York Times food critic and the dishes mix Western and Asian influences with Shanghainese cooking to surprising and succulent effect. The seafood dishes are particularly good – a steamed Yangzi sole, gingery-sweet smoked fish – but the pine-seed pork ribs in a soy, Worcester and red wine sauce is excellent too.
