Even during its regular dinner service, the New Shanghai makes dim sum–style dining an option—and a delight. Its panoply of steamed or fried dumplings and buns filled with chives, soupy ground pork, bean paste and the like counts among the area’s best, while an array of cold appetizers—pickled, salted and smoked—beckons the bold of palate. Other intriguing options include giant-sized lion’s head meatballs (juicy ground pork in a fine gravy) and sweet-and-spicy garlic pork, served in spongy rice-flour “pockets.”
