In its second location (the first was in the Gold Coast), this Chinese joint seems to have taken on the identity of the restaurants that surround it—that is, it’s just as smart, stylish and sexy as every other place on Randolph Street. The menu is full of Chinese staples, like plump, aggressively seasoned salt-and-pepper prawns. Some are described with flowery language, but don’t be mistaken—“Dreaming Roast Duck” is simply Peking duck with warm steamed buns. And “Crabby Cheese Crunch” is, yes, crab rangoon.
