Shojo shines as modern Chinatown
At Shojo, bao and shrimp toast appear beside duck fat fries and skirt steak with kimchi butter. Ravioli are filled with Chinese pork, fiery Thai green curry served in a bread bowl. Cousins and co-owners Brian and Brendan Moy opened their restaurant Aug. 8 — eights are lucky in Chinese culture — and had an opening party with a traditional ceremony. But their vision is untraditional, a more-modern version of the Chinatown restaurant, different yet in step with the neighborhood.
