Time Out says:
Thai native Suchanan “Bao Bao” Aksornnan (Bar Boulud, the Mercer Kitchen) retools French plates with Asian and Spanish flavors at this 20-stool spot. Off the border-busting menu, choose from dishes like roasted octopus with edamame and chipotle bernaise; baked cod with sushi-rice mushroom risotto; and seared duck ramen with poached daikon and shiitake mushrooms. The trim wine list features nine French and Spanish selections, while cocktails are of the brunch variety (mimosas, Bellinis). Contrasting the fusion fare, the all-American digs are outfitted with mason-jar lights, sunflower-filled vases and a vintage apron.
Village Voice says:
While you may be use to eating baos as a late night snack, this tiny kitchen next to Ramen Yebisu offers up a selection of steamed buns for brunch service. Combinations like the sober bao (eggs benedict with slow cooked pork and spinach) supplement a selection of sandwiches that round out the menu. Beer, wine, and cocktails are also available for purchase at this cash-only, no-reservations walk-in.
