China Live
All of the bars and restaurants that will eventually live in this 30,000sqft, multi-story building aren’t open yet, but if what’s happening on the first floor is a sign of what’s to come, we’ll likely be spending a lot more time in this “interactive culinary and cultural destination.” As of now, there’s the Oolong Cafe, a 25-seat counter-service cafe where you can drink artisanal teas and snack on Chinese pastries; and the Market Restaurant, which features an open kitchen and specialized stations for dumplings and dim sum, Chinese charcuterie and barbecue, noodles and rice bowls, live seafood, and wok stir-fry. Our favorite part? It’s affordable. You can fill up your stomach and drink a beer all for under $35. – The Thrillist (04.18.17)
