New York magazine recently reported:
"Joe's Ginger Restaurant. To alleviate the mayhem at the Pell Street address of Joes Shanghaian hours wait for a table is not uncommonthe owners have opened Joes Ginger Restaurant a mere soup dumplings toss away. For now, at least, **most dishes on the nearly identical menu are a couple of bucks cheaper** at the new spinoff. A bamboo basket of the slurpy crab-and-pork-stuffed steamed buns that made Joes famous, alas, goes for the full $6.25.
113 Mott Street
I haven't been particularly impressed by dishes other than the steamed buns, though (note buns not recently sampled).
