456 has long been one of our Chinatown restaurant go-tos for top notch Shanghai-style food. The bottom fried “tiny” (they aren’t tiny) dumplings rank among some of the best we’ve eaten. And there are meats so tender that they could be served at a five star steakhouse. It’s also very affordable - if you all have a beer, expect to spend about $20 a person.
