NSHReview

What the menu at Locust lacks in length it makes up for with some of the most interesting dishes in the city. Helmed by a former chef of The Catbird Seat, this small but mighty dumpling and kakigori shop in 12 South makes perfectly crisp dumplings doused in chili oil, chewy noodles, and fluffy cups of shaved ice that have inspired a local cult following. Is there sake? Of course, there’s sake, and you can count on the sake sommelier to make sure the selection keeps you on your toes. Reservations are a good idea - the restaurant is only open Thursday to Sunday, and both the indoor dining room and patio fill up fast.
