MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Go ahead and pinch yourself—you’re not dreaming. Pinch Chinese is really that good. The décor, with red metal chairs and birch countertops, is straight-up SoHo, but the food is all Flushing. The glass-paneled kitchen with mask-wearing chefs can veer a bit lab-like, but don’t worry, as they’re busy making soup dumplings. These superlative gems are works of art that taste even better than they look. Pork soup dumplings are a bite-sized explosion of savory goodness, with fresh ginger, black vinegar and soy sauce; while perfectly crispy duck slices are served with wraps, hoisin, and cucumber for a deliciously classic rendition. Finish with simple vanilla ice cream.

Happy Hour brings dumplings and wines (from a wonderfully surprising list) at a pretty price.
