Of the many persuasive clues that East Wind isn’t your standard-issue dumpling shack, the dry-aged-beef potstickers rank highest. The innards are rich and funky, and the golden-seared wrapper housemade, like all the rest of chef Chris Cheung’s markedly fresh, springy, and steamy buns and baos, filled with everything from Niman Ranch pork belly (in the Gwaco) to a hidden dab of foie gras. With its counter stools and bubble teas, the snug storefront has a vintage-luncheonette vibe and an entirely modern culinary sensibility.
