Max Falkowitz 6 comments

There many dumplings worth seeking out in Flushing, but only one that I get every time I visit. It doesn't matter what else I've come for—breakfast, tea shopping, a 12-course meal somewhere else—these dumplings are non-negotiable. More

Max Falkowitz 10 comments

Roots drummer Questlove has lent his signature fried chicken and punctuation mark of choice to Hybird, one of the newest food stalls in Chelsea Market. But dumplings, cupcakes, and slushies come along for the ride as well, in flavors like carrot cake-red curry and truffled egg. Could this WTF-ery be any good? We tried it all to find out. More

Manhattan's Chinatown has its share of dumplings: potstickers aplenty, Shanghainese xiao long bao, some wontons here and there. But if you want real dumpling diversity, and an overall upgrade in quality, you have to hop the 7 train to Flushing. Here are the essentials to get the most out of your dumpling crawl. More

Flushing Max Falkowitz 13 comments

Jason Wang, the 25 year-old business manager of the Xi'an Famous Foods mini empire, showed us where he goes for dumplings, noodles, and roast duck over rice. We expected the awesome food, but we also heard a local's story of a neighborhood in cultural and culinary flux, and got a look into the cutthroat, paranoid food industry where every third storefront seems to be a restaurant.

The Best Soup Dumplings In Chinatown, Manhattan

J. Kenji López-Alt 40 comments

Finding the best Xiao Long Bao—the famed soup-filled dumplings from Shanghai—in New York has always been a pet project of mine, but it's not an easy goal to accomplish. Given the magnitude of the task, I decided to break it down into more manageable, walkable segments. For our first installment, I limited my search area to Manhattan's Chinatown. More

RedFarm: Chinese-American Done Justice in the West Village

J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

High-end dim sum is what Ed Schoenfeld and Joe Ng do best. The former is the man behind Chinatown Brasserie, Shun Lee, and Shun Lee Palace; the latter, a dim sum chef Schoenfeld met in Sunset Park and brought on board at Chinatown Brasserie. Almost a year ago, the chef-restauteur pair launched the RedFarm stall in the upscale food court FoodParc, where we loved the dumplings and pastrami egg rolls and quite a bit else. And finally, after a number of delays and what seemed like weeks of preview dinners, they've opened their newest restaurant, also called RedFarm, in a townhouse in the West Village. More

The Vegetarian Option: Shanghai Café

The Vegetarian Option Laura Togut 6 comments

Though I've always loved New York's Chinatown—the food carts and fish markets, fake purses and dazed tourists, and of course all of the food shops, bakeries, and restaurants—eating in the neighborhood can be enough to make any vegetarian a little wary. Still, choose your destination wisely, and it's definitely possible to have a vegetarian meal in Chinatown fashion. More
