Looking for a soothing respite to while away a couple of
morning hours? Better look elsewhere. To sit down to dim sum here is to
enter a festive scene of families, order-barking owners, and servers
navigating metal carts of dishes from the kitchen through the
banquet-style room. The many dumplings are excellent, as are the generous
plates of steamed greens. And don’t leave without at least one order of
roast pig, with its thick, toffee-like bark and sublimely tender meat.
Saturday and Sunday 10 to 3.
