  • Washington PostDuring 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.

    55555 by Washington Post

    55555 by Lex


  • Sophia G.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..

    55555 by Tina H.


  • Michelle C.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.
