Now that Empress Pavilion is gone, where do I go?

jdwdeville | Dec 28, 201310:03 AM

Totally willing to accept the flames here, because I really did like Empress Pavilion. And I do prefer cart-style dim sum. So, in the vacuum left by Empress Pavilion calling it quits, would someone help me find my new favorite cart-style dim sum? I'd prefer Chinatown but am aware of the general consensus of the area on this board as a "Chow desert", so am willing to drive for the best.

Also, one more Chinese question as my knowledge in this are is severely limited- we've been to Chengdu Taste and Yunnan Garden recently, with the slight edge being given to Yunnan Garden due to their galaxy of items at the cold table (and lack of a soul-crushing wait). Would one of the more Chinese-knowledgable hounds mind recommending some places to try next? Would also love to try some of the other great cuisines of China but that might risk expanding this thread past it's usefulness.
Thank you!
