The Chronicle Food + Wine staff has its own picks for a Lunar New Year staple: dumplings. The traditional new year dumpling comes shaped like old-school gold or silver ingots, and consuming them during the holiday is a nod to more wealth in the new year. Here are some of the staff’s favorite restaurant dumplings. We included soup dumplings for fun, though most of these spots offer dumplings in the crinkly shape, too. For an extra dose of cheer, order noodles to symbolize longevity; many of these restaurants offer those, too.
