Dim Sum

I have family coming into town Sunday morning and they would like to go out for Dim Sum. What are your suggestions for the best Dim Sum in the city?

      highly recommend chatham (scoopG posted my review above), substantially better than any other place (although i dont mind dim sum go go)...although someone posted that chatham is all carts on the weekends, which is disappointing as it prob hurts quality of the food a bit

      also remember its 6 chatham (the new looking one) not 9 chatham (the old school looking one

      1. re: Lau

        Lau, it's not all carts on weekends because we went yesterday and ordered from the menu.

        1. Most people will agree that the best Dim Sum is in Flushing. I live in Brooklyn, so I feel there are plenty of places that stack up favorably to the places in Flushing. If you don't mind going to the outer boros, I would suggest leaving Chinatown Manhattan behind.
