Little Alley is a Shanghainese place in Murray Hill, and it’s one of the better dinner options in the area. It isn’t top-tier Chinese, but you won’t have any issues with the soup dumplings, and the space is nice enough for a casual date or maybe a dinner with your aunt who just called and wants to eat noodles with you. We wouldn’t recommend this place for groups or dining solo at bar (which is a little too high), but it’s pretty easy to get a table with one or two other people. Just don’t get the cumin lamb. It’ll only make you think of the superior version at Xi’an Famous Foods.

Kajitsu in Murray Hill is such a special place that it deserves to be part of the conversation when it comes to essential New York restaurants.
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
A long time Infatuation favorite. Blue Smoke is still serving some of the best BBQ you can find in NYC.
