Try the Shanghai Dumplings - Love

Try the Grilled Eggplant - Love!
Veg Pork Bums - awesome! Not the fake-o meat you would expect but instead amazing tofu.
Here's a bar where you can go in and tell the bartender the ingredients you like - say, bourbon, absinthe and lemon - and the crew will come up with something that hits the spot.
The spicy lamb is absolutely incredible! Something you've always longed for. Choose the ginger custard for your dessert....soooo delicious!
Get the crab and corn soup and remember to order a cocktail, which they are known for.
It should be law that every meal here starts with the Shanghai Dumplings. Bartenders are a bit standoffish, so don't be afraid to (politely) let them know what you want.

Grab a Shanghai Buck.
Sit at the bar, order Shanghai dumplings, pork belly in clam shells with extra scallions and wash down with a stiff PanAmerican Clipper.
Enjoy sitting at the bar - friendly and knowledgable bar staff
pick a spirit and let the bartenders do their magic. though don't be surprised if the tricks up their sleeve are from Flora's repertoire. also, the xiu long bao are pretty tasty.

My first time here. I let the bartender make a drink of their choice which was excellent. Also I suggest the peppercorn crusted flat iron steak. Was cooked to perfection!!!!
The pork belly will have you melting in your seat. I usually cannot eat anything seafood but the squid appetizer here is amazing! For cocktails, it's all about Freedom from choice.
So far the best combo discovered for good eats and quality mixology within walking distance of the SF Marriott Marquis.
