In a quiet dining room with mirrored walls and lots of greenery, regulars put away steamed Shanghai-style dumplings filled with crab and pork; light pastry-style dumplings filled with sautéed leeks; Shanghai spareribs; and jade shrimp with a spinach purée. It’s all terrific, but it’s the dumplings we crave most.
