There’s a certain satisfaction associated with picking up lunch and bringing it back to your office. You get to catwalk to your desk, toting your loot, and wait for your coworkers to ask where you got it from. And, when you pick up lamb noodles or dumplings from this counter-service spot in FiDi, you’ll get to announce that it’s all from Chubby Princess. This place is from the team behind MáLà Project (a dry pot restaurant in the East Village where we send everyone we know), but it feels almost completely different. For example, there are Chinese tacos on the menu and it looks like a Sweetgreen. While we can’t recommend planning a full, sit-down meal here, but it’s useful if you just want some quick Chinese food near Wall Street.
