I know there are endless threads on dim sum already, so my apologies. Here is what I'm trying to accomplish: my mother-in-law (very Caucasian) wants to take my mother (very Chinese) and us for a dim sum lunch next week. I don't want to do a high-end spot like LWH, Grand or Empire Court because my MIL will have a heart attack at the prices. So I'm looking for a mid-range spot with good quality (for my mother) and reasonable prices (for my MIL). Major bonus points for cleanliness. Minor bonus points for atmosphere.
I combed the threads and narrowed my options down to Dragon Dynasty, Casa Imperial, Empire Oriental Cuisine and Grass Mountain Villa. Which would our dim sum experts recommend? Am I missing another, more obvious, choice?
I don't frequent dim sum spots, so am really at a loss on my own. I don't even even know if all my choices are even open during the week for lunch.
