PHOTOS: Chinatown’s “Bao Bei” Coming Along Nicely On Keefer

December 15, 2009.

Returned to Bao Bei in Chinatown tonight for another glance. It’s come along plenty in just the last few days. I’m loving the details that have popped up so far: lots of recycled stuff like unique lamp shades in the bar and stools so grand-maternally homey that they couldn’t not have come from your grandma’s house. All the little design choices that have been made to date have been great, and it is hoped that chef Joel Watanabe should start testing in the kitchen soon. Mmm…soupy dumplings, soupy dumplings, soupy dumplings. I am ready for you.

    Is there a projected opening yet? I have a birthday to plan for and was thinking that a newly opened Bao Bei might be just perfect…

  • Scout Magazine

    I’d reckon in the week before or after Christmas Day.

    Couldn’t be more excited about this opening…. it has been ten years since living in Taiwan and am looking forward to hopefully seeing some items pop up on the menu
