Midtown Sanctuary, with Dumplings

Radiance Tea House, an island of calm in hectic Midtown, recently branched out on 50th Street with an expanded menu of dumplings and other Chinese fare. Chowhounds recommend crisp, juicy Hong Kong–style shrimp (pictured), cooked with a light hand, complemented by refreshing iced teas flavored with fruits and herbs.
