Fodor's Expert Review Seamstress Restaurant & Bar

$$ City Center Asian

This bar-restaurant occupies a heritage-listed four-story building that has housed an undergarment manufacturer, a 1900s sweatshop, a brothel, and even a Buddhist temple (but not at the same time). Tasty Asian dishes, in small, medium, and large portions, are designed to be shared. Everything is served in an atmospheric brick-walled first-floor dining area decorated with swaths of fabric and sewing machines; the wine selection is stored in battered metal luggage lockers.
