    I have a peanut allergy, but took a risk & came for dim sum. Waiter had no concept of how to handle allergies, & I had to prompt him to check w/ kitchen when he couldn't remember if a dish had peanuts

    During dim-sum service, grab the duck bao buns. Slivers of moist duck are tucked into doughy Chinese steamed buns and paired with crunchy cucumbers. The duck takes 3 days to make and it shows. Read more

    Wow not good. I'm a little disappointed at the long service and pushy water guys. The food was fishy and drippy. But the pork dumplings get a 10/10! Loud and old scene. Try again wolf gang puck..

    TT tip: Drewno's soup dumplings have become puffy soup buns with bao-like dough wrapping his luxe pork-belly filling. Chile-spiced wontons meld pork butt with ginger, scallions and garlic.
