Chinatown Brasserie

(Now Closed)
Chinese Restaurant, Dumpling Restaurant, and Dim Sum Restaurant · NoHo
380 Lafayette St (at Great Jones St), New York, NY 10003, United States

This ritzy East Village dumpling palace spotlights Hong Kong native Joe Ng’s riffs on Chinese classics. The extravagant Asian-inflected design is a jaw-dropping chinoiserie dream complete with a lily pad–laden koi pond, a chic alternative to the City’s normally bare-bones dim sum parlors.

    Happy hour 5-7 Mon-Fri. Half price appetizers at the bar and good drink specials. Frozen Mai Tais are dangerous, but tasty. Love the spicy Tanteo tequila margaritas.

    I love almost all the food here but especially the moo shu pork with egg omelet. The room behind the bar is great for a private party for special occasions. Excellent food and relatively affordable.

    faves include the shrimp/snow pea leaf and lamb dumplings. your meal should definitely more lean towards dim sum than entrees, though the coconut curry shrimp is fab...

    One of the best dim sum restaurants outside of Chinatown. We’d recommend the Mushroom and Bok Choy, Steamed Shrimp, or Pan-Fried Lamb Dumplings as well as the Pork Buns.
