Remy Martin VSOP, Li Hing Mui, Ginger Ale In the 19th century, U.S clipper ships in the China trade required a great deal of labor to operate. It was a common practice to kidnap sailors while they were at port and overindulging in the bars...when they woke up, they were out at sea and had no way of getting back. This cocktail was created in memory of those who unwillingly set sail for Shanghai. Hence the term "Shanghaiing" or you have been "Shanghaied"

By day, the restaurant is a culinary studio experimenting with new flavors and new ideas. Where dishes are tested and born; where brainstorming sessions give rise to innovative methods and partnerships; where staff is trained and goals are set; where meals are shared with the senior citizens of our local community; where preparations are made for large charity event dinners; the center point from which AWR is able to explore, learn and serve. By night, the kitchen orchestrates a buzz of simmering flavors amidst the sounds of sizzling pans, chopping knives and culinarians forewarning hot dishes or an opening oven door.
