Congee gets high marks for effort, with trompe l'oeil stained-glass windows, hanging grapes, and crockery art that could be homage to Schnabel. The namesake rice soup, usually a breakfast porridge, comes in flavors like a fabulously sweet, almost gelatinous duck-and-meatballs. Lemon slices add tang to a splendid stir-fry of salt-baked squid, and crisp chicken arrives under a flurry of scallion and garlic crackles.
