Nom Wah Nolita

Situated in New York’s Nolita neighborhood (“North of Little Italy”), Nom Wah Nolita is a fast-casual restaurant. Opened in September 2016, this location features self-service ordering systems, traditional steamed dumplings, and a new take on Chinese food. Blending Chinese flavors and American ideas, dishes take a forward-thinking approach. Rotating dishes, collaborations and specials compose the menu.

The laid-back restaurant features artwork—anthropomorphic dumplings—by artists Sheryo and Yok.
