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.
