456 is back! 456 was a well-regarded Shanghainese restaurant with a famous Chef from Ningbo 宁波 that must have closed down more than 20 years ago. The new, five month-old 456 is serving up 沪菜 Hu4 Cai4 or the specialties of Shanghai, Zhejiang and Jiangsu.
Stopped in for a quick visit and there is plenty enough going on here to assure many more visits. The kitchen is in the basement and is bustling with activity.
Small h is right about their solid XLB. A steal at only $0.61 cents each. Also sampled were a delicious and huge slab of Pork Shoulder in Honey Sauce, traditionally prepared Preserved Vegetable with Soybeans and Tofu Skin and a suggested special of Fish served Two Ways.
Service was efficient and prompt.
