Dim Sum in Manhattan?
I know this topic is discussed, but . . .
I'd love to do dim sum -- is that available during the week, or Sunday only?
And: where? I've heard Oriental Garden or South China Garden, Golden Unicorn, and Royal Seafood. I'm a typical white girl and don't want to go too far out of my comfort zone -- I just really like tiny foods made well!

most Dim Sum places in Chinatown serve it 7 days a week--just call to see when time it ends...it's usually sometime around 3-4pm.
i just ate at Jing Fong this past weekend and was very happy with it. I feel like all the Chinatown Dim Sum spots change chefs so frequently that can be so-so on one month and very good the next (i haven't had anything better than very good in Manhattan--for great, check out Flushing or Brooklyn Chinatown...and let's not get into California or Hong Kong). that said, if you're planning on doing Dim Sum in the very near future i'd tip my hat towards Jing Fong. right now, they're offering tons of newbie-friendly dumplings--and as a bonus, their insanely immense dining room is an experience in itself!
