URGENT! Late night chinese tonight

Willa Jul 18, 2013 03:11 PM

Going to the theater tonight and planned to have dim sum at Cai in Chinatown. Didn't realize it closes at 4! Any recommendations for late night Chinese or Asian? We like authentic, some heat, dumplings, etc...

    What time will you be expecting to eat?

      Dim sum is a brunch meal traditionally, not really eaten at night.

      Lao Sze Chuan is open until midnight.

        Yikes -- I should have remembered that about dim sum and brunch. Love Lao Sze Chuan. Thanks for the response! We saw "Wait wait don't tell me" at the Chase Auditorium and ended up at one of my favorite Italian spots: Volare.

          I am looking up Triple Crown. Have never been there but good to know. I like dim sum at any time of day. Thanks for the response.
