1. Shanghai Lounge 1734 Wisconsin Ave. NW, , Washington, 20007 (Glover Park)

Just opened by a Shanghai-born chef whose Glover Park teahouse's lauded for its authenticity (Sietsema says "Close your eyes, and you can pretend you're halfway around the world"!), The Lounge serves up its city's solids amidst two floors of antique Chinese lanterns and similar artifact-ery, all of which were collected before the imposition of a Chinese law restricted shipping such things out, while conveniently allowing them to continue exporting ridiculous Western movie premises involving Owen Wilson.
