We recently enjoyed a charming brunch at the Dakota Bar & Bistro in the former French Concession. On their website, they describe themselves as being an American-style bistro, and they delivered on their promise. From the casual, street-side patio to the sumptuously dark interior, we felt as though we’d been transported to the Upper East Side of Manhattan, home to some of our favorite brunch experiences. I relish any opportunity to bond with my beloved New York City, even if I’m 11,000 kilometers away.
