        I agree with Robert: East Ocean is just a couple of minutes through the Webster tube into Alameda.

      Before we can recommend a "new" place it would help to know what the "old" place(s) were.

        I also like East Ocean. Peony is okay. I used to like Golden Bear, but I think it is literally now called "the old place". So not sure if it is under the same ownership. Hong Kong East Ocean is also fine in Emeryville, but $$$$.

          Hong Kong East Ocean in Emeryville has a spectacular bay view and menus rather than carts. I've always eaten well there.

            I'm a big fan of their turnip cake in XO sauce.

          I've only been to Legendary Palace, so I can't comment on any other restaurants nearby. But I did like LP a lot. When we went last year, it was a busy Father's day afternoon, but we were seated upstairs pretty quickly (honestly not even a 2-minute wait, but I'm guessing we just got lucky).

          The servers' English isn't all that (as with many other dim sum places I've come across), but as long as you know what food you want you should be good.

            just another rec for East Ocean in Alameda. Good, clean, and even when there's a line, it moves fast.
