Atlanta - Oriental Pearl gone...now what?

LizR | May 18, 2005 04:39 PM

I just read on Atlanta Cuisine.com that Oriental Pearl has closed. I am in shock. We liked the dim sum there better than anywhere else, especially Canton House, which we always found too greasy. Any suggestions for a potential new favorite? I saw some talk of Frank Ma's below. Do they do weekend dim sum? Anywhere else come to mind? Live near Grant Park but am willing to drive about 30 minutes if the turnip cakes and the scallop dumplings are as good as Oriental pearl. Mmmm...scallop dumplings...

By the way, any insights into why they closed? Is it one of those cases of too much success? It was ALWAYS packed whe we went. Maybe they made their millions and are retiring to the beach??
