My 2 favorite Dim Sum places in Manhattan have abruptly shut down with no forwarding information. This is happening to many of my favorite old restaurants. So sad. First lost chinese place on 97th and broadway, then to my shock Sweet N Tart on Mott st. Been to the Sweet n Tart in Queens, it's just too far.
Cany anyone recommend an authentic Dim Sum on Sat or Sunday morning in manhattan? Can be with portable carts or an order from menu as long as it is the real thing...ie. pork buns, shrimp dumplings, clams in black bean sauce, spare ribs with bean curd, fish neck, etc....
thanks, i am David.
Carts: Golden bridge on bowery street between bayard and canal.
Off the menu: Pings on mott street or Dim sum gogo on East broadway-chatham square.
Couldn't find them on menupages...maybe closed? I remember these places from when I was younger...I pretty much only go to Shun Lee Cafe for fried stuff and Dim Sum Go Go for dumplings now. I'm sorry!
Last Sunday I had the dim sum surprise of my life. I went to Chinatown Brasserie that new chic-y, bi-level fancy pants place on Lafayette where Time Cafe used to be. The dim sum chef is Joe Ng who turned out great ds creations at a place called World Tong in Bensonhurst Brooklyn. Fabulous dim sum. Fresh, beautifully prepared, delicate and flavorful. Can't go into more detail now. I'm going back Saturday evening for more.
