Had a nice lunch of decent Xiao Long Bao and fish filets in Wine Sauce at Shanghai Restaurant. Thought the bao were decent, kind of 'B' in its execution, likely frozen and steamed up. The fish filets were nicely cooked, the wine sauce was good but too thickened up.

When we walked out, we found a place that's just about to open: Tian Jin Dumplings at 989 Franklin, Suite B- only take out. They are going to be open 7 days a week, from 8 am to 6 pm. They only had the pork and chive dumplings, $6.75 for 15. This may be a very interesting place! The dumplings clearly are hand made. They had the Robot Coupe box outside their booth and they were hand rolling the dough as we walked walked by.
