Change at ocean star?

  • 4

Just went yesterday after a diet hitaus of 6 months; what is the deal with the new Ocean Star for dim-sum? Seemed like it must be under new ownership - new dim-sum menu and missing many of the items that I used to go for. I enjoyed some of the new tastes, but missed the old too much. What is my best bet for my next dim-sum and calorie-busting outing - cart-style? Yes I go to Empress Pavilion often. Thanks!

  1. Try Golden Dragon in Chinatown. I don't know if they are under new ownership or merely have taken a step back into serving good dim sum with a wide variety. As I'm sure you know dishes change with the hour. The Golden Dragon was the second place I ever had dim sum back in 1968. At that time it was the leader in Chinatown. It went down hill in about the early 90s but based on a recent visit it seems to have made a comeback.

        Thanks for the link to the Ocean Star comments. Even tho' I'm a hounder, I missed those comments. Still would have tried it. And they have NO alcohol license. What Im wondering is, is East Gourmet Seafood like the Old Ocean Star?

          No. East Gourmet Seafood is also value priced--low priced dim sum in the daytime, lobster etc. specials to draw you in at dinnertime.
