Thanx for the rec - 888

Will Owen | Aug 1, 200512:49 PM

Massive family invasion this weekend, and we took them to 888 for dim sum as recommended by several Hounds. Boy, what a stunning success that was! Some of the best dumplings and things we'd ever had anywhere, as well as some of the friendliest service: three of us showed up well before the rest on a very busy Saturday morning, and instead of being made to wait as seems to be usual were seated immediately at a table set for eight.

There were seven of us, actually, and we ate an awful lot of really good and interesting stuff; the chop marks on the tab were really piling up, and as I was gonna be picking up the tab I was wondering how big the hit was going to be. My ex-wife, who's used to San Francisco prices, told me later she was expecting a tab of well over $150...but it was less than half of that! Under $10 per head, in fact - about $68.

I think we have a new favorite.
