Flushing dim sum - New year's Day?

Is my assumption that it will be business as usual at restaurants in Flushing on New year's day correct or way off-base? Obviously I can call on the morning but we're trying to plan with a group coming from diverse locations. Thanks in advance.

  1. You don't have to wait until that day to call. You can call now. Also, I live in Bensonhurst's Chinatown and can tell you that none of the Chinese business here ever close, not even on Chinese New Year, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc., etc. I don't think they believe in holidays which is great for me because I can always get a meal or something at the store that I need.

    1. It's going to be a day as usual, much like any busy Sunday, perhaps a tiny bit more crowded. All local businesses will be open. I see no reason to call: I doubt that any dim sum parlor takes reservations, at least not to the best of my knowledge.
