Food Photo Friday - Joe's Shangai

AHH! It's my first day in NYC and I'm super excited. I'm really tired though! So I'm gonna try to make this quick. We got into NYC around 4 o'clock and were stuck in traffic for a good while. We got to our hotel around 5:30 and after we checked in and got situated, we headed out to NYC in search for dinner. ALLLLL of my friends have been raving about Joe's Shangai so we decided it would be a good meal after a long flight (long in my terms since I HATE flying!) There are a couple locations in New York, but we went to the one closest to our hotel.
