A longstanding Chinatown restaurant just got a makeover from the team behind a popular Asian bistro in Boston. The Best Little Restaurant is under the auspices of the same people behind modern Asian restaurant Shojo, and it made its new debut on June 1.

The Best Little Restaurant — 2.0 version — served dinner from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday, according to various posts on social media. The Shojo team made some updates to the inside of the 13A Hudson St. restaurant, where they're serving new dishes from executive chef Mark O'Leary, who has been with Shojo since 2014 and previously worked at O Ya and JM Curley.

The restaurant has reportedly been in the family of one of the Shojo members for 30 years, and its revamping comes at a time when a number of new spots are taking root in the neighborhood: Joy Luck Hot Pot opened recently, and Sweet Kingdom opened an additional location in the area not too long ago. Chinatown staple Avana Sushi added a nearby Downtown Crossing location as well.

Additionally, Shojo has plans to open a new concept called Ruckus Noodles, though the team has not revealed many details yet.

The menu at The Best Little Restaurant features such items as whole roasted trout, soy sauce chicken, soft-shell crab egg foo young, and roasted bone marrow with scallion pancakes, to name a few.
