Early Report: Shanghai with Style at China Blue

Fans of Midtown's Café China may recognize its signature ’30s décor at China Blue, its three-week-old sister restaurant in Tribeca. What's different at the new place is the food—Shanghai style, not Sichuan. Expect well-executed regional standards like silky drunken chicken, tender West Lake vinegar fish, and rich, slow-braised dongpo pork (pictured) with excellent lotus buns.
