New York Chinese Food – Spring – 36 West 38th Street, New York, NY – Chinese boiled dumplings to die for

It was a Tuesday night, New York in late November – a chill wind blowing in off the river and my friends and I were hurrying from a rendezvous at Bryant Park, just behind New York Central Library, to meet another friend on 9th avenue. Fate had us trudging quickly along 38th Street between 5th and 6th avenues, racing to get to 9th.  I pass this place and literally screech to a stop. Something about the interior, the design, the glimpse of the ambience registered on lots of levels. And then I saw the words: Chinese Dumplings. One of my favourite things. 

As I stood there, gawping  some random bloke walked past and called over to me, “Man! That place is AMAZING!” So…. a couple days later I return. This time not in a rush to meet anybody AND feeling rather peckish. The owner and I got talking and he just blew me away with his generous and energetic spirit. Great atmosphere. Great business. And GREAT food.

November. The owner’s wife studied fashion in London – living there for 6 years. Now they’re back in the US she’s applied her creative skills to the interior design of the place. It’s spacious and has a lovely atmosphere. I really can’t recommend this place enough.
