Asian Occasion

A hip spot in Chinatown for food and sake

amed for the mythological half-man half-monkey searching for an endless sake river, Shojo offers modern takes on Asian fare with craft cocktails and, of course, a range of sake. Like the food, the decor is way more contemporary than most of the schlocky interiors you’ll find in Chinatown. The menu is shorter, too, featuring just a few specialty entrees from honey barbecue pork ravioli to salmon with dashi glaze to whole roast pigs. Stick around after dinner as the tables are taken away and a DJ arrives. Connolly
