Pu pu platters in Westchester?

We want to take our son out to experience a "pu pu platter" in Westchester.

Does anybody know of any places that serve that style and do it well?

    1. Cosi's uses a pu pu platter to make s'mores in the evenings.

    2. I did a bit of Googling, found this place in Greenwich... don't know it, so you'll have to do some more sleuthing...

          How is Lum Yen? We are looking for an old fashioned chinese (chinese american) restaurant like we used to go to. Would they fit the bill?

            Yeah. Lum Yen is like the Chinese restaurants of my childhood that seems to be disappearing. Everything these days is Chinese takeout or upscale fusion. Lum Yen is what I considered "real" Chinese food as a kid. The walls are red. There is a menu of fruity drinks in fancy glasses (with pictures). They serve big, flaming Pu Pu Platters.

            Is the food authentic? Heck no! But it tastes good for what it is, decent Americanized "Chinese" food and lots of it. What I like about their menu is that there is a description of each dish they serve. Unlike a lot of places, they tell you what vegetables are in each dish.

              Thanks it sounds just what we were looking for Christmas day. I am going to rally the troops to try it out soon.
