I almost don't want to write about this place because I think it's one of the best kept secrets in NYC. For whatever reason this place is always relatively empty, not in a creepy way, but you can always get a table. It is hands down one of my favorite dumpling spots. It is unassuming and doesn't have an authentic Cantonese vibe or traditional dim sum, which probably throws people off. They have all my favorite dumplings and dan dan noodles. Every single thing is great and I could order with my eyes closed here. Get all the soup dumplings, pork and kimchi, crispy chicken, dan dan noodles and motchi. This place is great for brunch or a date. I've probably been here over twenty times and it never gets old.
