Fortune Wok to Table

The “Fortune” part of this cozy restaurant’s name comes from the characters "fu" and "tu" in Shanghainese. Together they mean "in the fortune of good company" or "in the spirit of good company," according to the staff. “Wok to Table” simply means that every meal on the compact but flavorful menu is prepared in a wok and served fresh to customer’s plates. The Cherry Creek spot's lower level focuses on Shanghainese street food: Dumplings, noodles and fried rice are stalwarts, and there is usually a small selection of seasonal entrees. The upstairs has variously offered a separate fine-dining menu, space for private parties and a once-weekly tasting menu by reservation only, so be sure to check Fortune's website for the most current info if you're looking for a high-end experience. No matter which menu you end up ordering from, you're a lucky duck.
