Shun Lee is known for its delicious chinese food and great upper west side vibe. But it's also known for its rather pricey menu. However, the adjoining cafe is the ticket to a fantastic dinner at half the price. Dim sum is the speciality around here, and I highly recommend the steamed shrimp and chive dumplings. The orange beef is another tasty option, and for dessert- try the leeches- good for you and better-tasting than anywhere else in NYC that I can think of. Shun Lee Cafe is the perfect follow up or precursor to a night at Lincoln Center or one of the many excellent movie theaters on the upper west side.
