In the world of dim sum, there probably isn’t a bigger name than Tim Ho Wan. The original Hong Kong hole-in-the-wall made a splash in 2009 when it was awarded a Michelin star, becoming at the time the most affordable place in the world to earn that distinction. Since then, chef Mak Kwai Pui has expanded not only in Hong Kong, but also to places like Singapore, Indonesia, and Australia. But this New York outpost is his first this side of planet Earth, and it stands to be a premier dim sum destination. It won’t be the kind of giant dumpling palace found in Chinatown and Sunset Park, but a smaller, 60-seat spot designed to look like its predecessor. (The downside to this approach, of course, is that its relatively small size definitely won’t help with the inevitably crazy wait times.) The New York location will serve dim sum essentials, including barbecue pork buns, steamed rice rolls with more barbecue pork, pan-fried turnip cakes, and Chiuchow–style dumplings. There will also be dishes created specifically for New York, including French toast with custard filling and a mango slush drink. Speaking of beverages: Along with six different teas, the restaurant will, unlike other locations, serve beer and wine, so you can have an adult beverage with your braised yuba with pork and shrimp.


There is a $10 minimum for credit cards.
