Mirroring the dawn of Pac Heights-appropriate banh mi a few months back, Dumplings & Buns opens today on California St., putting a modern pastry chef's spin on age-old Chinese recipes. The nitty gritty on Dumplings & Buns was shared in March. Now we bring you a first look at the exterior and interior a la R3 Builders and the menu. The joint's Facebook page has some early glossy images of said dumplings and buns here and here. Also news that there won't be dumplings or wonton soup until later this week, due to an equipment issue. D&B's signature smaller, sustainably sourced versions of your typical Chinatown bun will have to tide you over until then. Now, please do fill in first reports in the comments section or send them here .
