The second location of the crazy-popular modern dumpling spot that started in the East Village. Here you’ll find the same kind of gourmet (pasture-raised chicken, pasture-raised pork, etc.) dumplings. Our only question is how this is only the second location.

Rai Rai Ken
There’s plenty of ramen in the East Village these days, and no shortage of opinions on where to go. We happen to believe that Rai Rai Ken sits near the top of the heap, mostly because that shoyu ramen is so good, but also because it’s inexpensive and simple.
Mighty Quinn’s Barbecue
One of the best BBQ options in New York City, Might Quinn’s started at Smorgasburg and is becoming a smoked meat empire.
Even though it might not be the coolest of the East Village Italian restaurants, Lavagna is right up there with the best.

Kung Fu Little Steamed Buns Ramen
Yes, that's the real name of this restaurant, which is impressive. The ramen? Not so impressive. But there are other things to love at this noodle spot in Hell's Kitchen.
Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle
The noodles are good, but the real reason you go to this tiny Chinatown spot is for some of the best dumplings in the city.
Xi’an Famous Foods
On one hand, Xi’an’s presence in Midtown is great because this area desperately needs more cheap and delicious things to eat for lunch. On the other hand, no one at your office wants to be around for the aftermath of those spicy cumin lamb noodles you ordered.
