In a space that’s come to define the new modern Chinatown aesthetic—lofty ceilings and redbrick walls—chef Robynne Maii serves the food she craves. What that means: polished comfort food with no boundaries. You’ll find a carbonara with Portuguese sausage, a textbook-perfect burger, and a kalbi-marinated bavette steak. This is also one of my favorite places for a cocktail, from the classics to those with subtle hints of the Pacific.
