Chinese Restaurants That Serve Dim Sum At Dinner/Late Afternoon?

It seems like most of the Chicago/Chinatown dim sum restaurants only serve dim sum for lunch. Does anyone know of any good dim sum places that do dim sum for dinner or at least extend late into the afternoon? My family is planning on going to dim sum in Chinatown for Xmas since a lot of them are open, but we'd rather go for an early dinner than lunch, but if all the good ones are only doing dim sum for lunch, we'd rather go to a late lunch than eat crappy dim sum. Thanks!

  1. You might want to call them individually to ask, since their plans for Christmas may be different from what they normally do.

    1. i think the main place is called... Phoenix House? It's a two-three story building right across from new chinatown. I believe they serve Dim Sum all day and it's very good. If not, I think some of the places in the new chinatown square serve dim sum specifically as well. I was in Chinatown in June and that's how i remembered it.
