It's pretty small in selection and in typeface. There are 34 items total, including the sides of rice (which don't appear to come with entrees).

They have dim sum, salads, dumplings, "bao bao bun" sandwiches, rice- and noodle-based dishes, protein-focused specialties and soup, of course. Price-wise, it's kind of what I expected but hoped against for the neighborhood. Just to give you an idea, the Tangerine Beef is $32. Sesame Chicken is $22. The BBQ rib appetizer is $16. Want some chow fun? $16. The dumplings are priced from $8-12 for veg, pork, or shrimp.

The decor is very sleek and modern, like all of the Pennette/CB5 restaurants. It looks like they're serving dishes with mass appeal made with organic ingredients and priced for the trust-fund crowd to eat while they pretend they're at a place in the city. $6 for egg drop soup, and I'll bet it only serves 1. We'll be trying it next week to see if it's worth the price.
