{ Chinese bao, or steamed buns, are traditionally filled with meat, egg, vegetables or bean paste. }

Clayton will soon be home to a restaurant specializing in Chinese steamed buns. As reported by St. Louis Magazine, the aptly named Bao (short for baozi, the Chinese word for steamed bun) is scheduled to open later this month at 14 N. Central Ave., in the former location of Coastal Bistro.

Co-owner R.J. Xu said the restaurant, which seats 50, would initially focus on breakfast and lunch service, with a menu featuring several styles of steamed buns. Eventually, Xu said Bao would expand to included dinner service with a selection of Asian dishes, including Chinese and Japanese fare, along with the eponymous buns. He said the menu is still being finalized.
