Upscale Dim Sum?

eater_eater | May 11, 2008 02:21 PM

Hi Board,

I'm a NYer who just got back from San Francisco. Went back to Yank Sing for the first time in years, and it was fantastic. Completely authentic? Probably not, but upscale and delicious. Big pork buns, scallop and shitake dumplings, chicken fun gowr, and others that were upscale, delicious, and not that expensive (my fairly large, to-go sampler plate came to $9--pricy for dim sum but not bad for lunch). I was wondering if there were Dim Sum places in New York that are more like that. I love more typical dim sum, but the Jing Fong/Golden Unicorn/Pings experience is a very different one from that of Yank Sing, and I'd love to replicate it here on the east coast. Any suggestions?
