Chinese

At the cusp of Chinatown and Little Italy, this longstanding staple shines with perfect soup dumplings. Not too heavy, not too soupy, the handcrafted dumplings are made with dough that's thick enough to safely make the journey from chopstick to mouth without sagging or leaking. Shanghai Café also has a solid selection of reliable plates like scallion pancakes and spring rolls, and everything is more-than-reasonably priced.
