New York

Joe’s Shanghai

6 Bowery, New York, NY 10013

The restaurant used to be located on a street, once frequented by the Chinese mafia, but the new location is just around the corner.

The design of the new location is more modern, with wood, lanterns and neon lights. No more carpets on the floor, but there are still some very large tables that you share with strangers. It’s less old school New York, but the food is still top-notch.

Start by ordering the unmissable soup dumplings, with a choice of pork or pork and crab. Then we recommend the sesame chicken, dried sauteed shredded beef and a choice of Lo Mein noodles.

Reservations are not possible. There’s often a queue (allow 30 minutes), but it’s well worth it.

PLAN B: if it’s too crowded, you can try Jing Fong, another PLAN in Chinatown.
