Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

One of the city’s most exciting mixologists… is in Woburn? Ran Duan took over the drink menu at his parents' suburban Chinese restaurant—a revelation in its own right—and turned it into an outré bar program that draws cocktail connoisseurs from all over. Classic drinks like pisco punches get bracing updates (pineapple vinegar?); Duan even won an award at the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition for his Father's Advice (rum, amaro, vermouth, sherry, creme de banana). In Baldwin & Sons Trading Company, the bar within the bar within the restaurant, things get downright kitschy, with tiki glassware and dry ice effects. Keep an eye on Duan’s just-opened Blossom Bar in Brookline, a complete redo of his parent’s first restaurant, which combines Szechuan classics with a similarly outré cocktail program.
