Dim Sum in Baltimore - Does it exist?
I am looking for help finding a great Dim Sum spot in Baltimore. Food quality on the level of Grace Garden would be ideal but I'm not holding my breath. Any help is appreciated - thanks!
There is talk that the Red Parrot in McHenry Row (right off Fort Avenue), which is a "pan-Asian" resto in a new residential/retail development, may start serving dim sum. I was there last weekend and they had not yet. Avoid Zhongshan, unless they've made a dramatic improvement in the last two years.
Asian Court on route 40 has relatively good food (A-) but B for ambience, while Red Pearl is similar quality food (A-) and nicer ambience (B+). Asian Court is slightly cheaper, though, which is a plus.
Zhongshan is C quality food and C quality ambience. I have been a half dozen times, and the only benefit is that it's right in the city and is cheap. My wife hates it there, and so we don't go anymore, even if we don't have time to travel to the others.
