NYC Lunch Suggestion (Asian)
I will only have time for 1 meal in NYC and I'm struggling to choose.
Price is not a factor, but I don't want anything too stuffy or a particularly long meal.
I'm leaning towards Asian because it's tough for me to get great Asian food at home, but would be open to other suggestions as well.
I will be there on Sunday so Dim Sum is an option.
What about Joe's Shanghai? I have never been and heard great things. Are all of the locations comparable?
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Also for dim sum there is Red Farm to consider with two locations that are not in Chinatown.
There are better options than Joes Shanghai. I think 456 has the best soup dumplings in Chinatown now, with Shanghai Heping a close second.
The full dim sum experience is not Manhattan's strongest suit. You can get terrific dumplings at Red Farm, but you'd still have a better experience on the West Coast.
We do have a growing number of modern Southeast Asian restaurants like Pig & Khao, Aux Epices or Kin Shop that have Sunday hours as well as traditional restaurants like Zabb Elee, Xi'an Famous Foods or Somtum Der that can do a quick lunch if you are in a rush. Szechuanese, ramen and sushi are other strong categories to search on the boards if those cuisines appeal to you.
