Lynn Restaurant Review

: Lynn is a smart, contemporary restaurant serving Shanghai-style food, and it does so with flair. The menu is fully in English and has pictures. Try the Shanghai crispy duck that comes with shell-shaped steamed bread pockets, but make sure to finish it while it’s still hot. Crab meat with sesame bread pockets is also well worth a try. While the dim sum fixed price brunch at weekends is popular, this restaurant is not Cantonese and it shows with the quality and drop in service. The interior is moody with dark wooden partitions and dimmed lighting. Waitstaff is reasonably attentive.
