Shun Lee Café

TEL: (212) 595-8895

The Shun Lee Cafe is perfect for a pre-show stop; it's across from the Lincoln Center, blocks from the Theater District, and the dim sum cart makes for quick service. Black and white checkerboard ceilings and walls and white tables with black chairs are artfully arranged beneath lanterns modeled after the Chinese calendar. Dim sum carts zip through an otherwise calming atmosphere, bringing dishes such as shrimp and ricotta puffs, giant fried crab claws, and fresh dumplings. Full-size entrees are also available, such as the Szechuan-style rack of lamb and the Beijing duck served with crepes, spring onions, and hoisin sauce.
