Joe's Shanghai

Joe's Shanghai first opened in Queens, but buoyed by the accolades accorded his steamed soup dumplings - magically filled with a rich, fragrant broth and a pork or pork-and-crabmeat mixture Joe saw fit to open in Manhattan's Chinatown, and then midtown. At each location there is always a wait, but the line moves fast. Menu high-lights include turnip shortcakes and dried bean curd salad to start, and succulent braised pork shoulder, ropey homemade Shanghai noodles, and traditional lion's head-rich pork meatballs braised in brown sauce and embellished with steamed baby bok choy - to follow. Other more familiar Chinese dishes are also excellent.

Great New York Noodletown

Lacquered ducks, roasted pork, crunchy baby pig, and soy sauce chicken hang in the window of this clean, no-frills restaurant. Each is superb, especially with the pungent garlic and ginger sauce served on the side. The soups and noodles are unbeatable-try the shrimp dumplings in broth or the pan-fried noodles with beef. Seasonal specialties such as duck with flowering chives and salt-baked soft-shell crabs are excellent. So is the congee (rice porridge), available with any number of garnishes. Solo diners may end up at a communal table, but everyone ends up happy.

Address: 28 Bowery, at Bayard St.
Phone: 212/349-0923. Reservations not accepted. No credit cards.
