This semi-formal Chinese spot near Lincoln Center serves elegant and varied regional fare that'll satisfy any Chinatown-worthy cravings. Shun Lee is popular for its dim sum and Hong Kong-style dumplings, but also for its large plates like Szechuan-style lamb and walnut, peanut, and cashew chicken. As most Upper West Side residents can attest, Shun Lee and its large, palatial dining room is the best in the 'hood.
