Soup Dumplings Honoring Shanghai Before Drinks & Trivia At A Local Haunt
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
It’s time for soup dumplings, darling. The moment you enter Bund on Broadway, you'll be welcomed by a sweeping mural of Shanghai painted across one wall. Honoring the waterfront area of Shanghai (The Bund), this eatery is known for their pork soup dumplings which the chefs grind fresh every day, hand wrap in a wad of dough, and concoct into a pork-skin-based soup with garlic, onion, and chicken stock. Even though the thing you should order is the dumplings, there are many other options, notably the Peking duck dish and spicy pork noodle soup.
Next, cozy up with some wine and chocolate fondue at RaR bar. This Astoria bar is what you crave from a neighborhood haunt. The staff is friendly, there are nightly events (open mics, comedy shows, and trivia). The vibe is casual, yet unique—we especially love the wine glass holder light fixtures above the bar. Plus, there’s happy hour all night on Mondays and 4-7 p.m. Tuesday to Friday. On Wednesdays, wine bottles are 20 percent off (and you know the two of you can put one away).
