Fodor's Expert Review Shorty Tang Noodles

$$ Chelsea Chinese
This sleek Chinese restaurant hails from the family of the Chinese immigrant (Mr. Shorty Tang himself) who introduced New York to Sichuan cuisine in the 1960s. The Chelsea spot, as the name suggests, focuses on plus-size bowls of noodle-laced soups, like the excellent braised beef noodle soup, as well as the signature cold sesame noodles. The soup dumplings, or xiao long bao, are also good here.
