Har Gow at Chinatown Brasserie. Had lunch there with Ed Schoenfeld and Francis Lam. Eddie did convince me that these are the best dim sum in the city.

    True, in general, excellent Dim Sum. And, Mr. Schoenfeld knows his dim sum, but he’s also the mastermind behind the cuisine at Chinatown Brasserie. And, when he arrives, he is easily recognized and the kitchen snaps to.
    Having eaten dim sum there on half a half dozen occasion—more for its proximity to my house than because it is my favorite Chinese restaurant, I will simply say some of the dishes are exquisite others ordinary. On some occasion the dishes have arrive cold and hard and without the proper sauces, dropped off by a staff that has not bothered to learn about what they’re serving and how to serve it.
    All this aside, if one ever gets the chance to eat with Mr. Schoenfeld, jump at the opportunity. And, if one needs to knows something about Chinese food, and the joy of eating in general, he’s your man.
