The world's cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant is opening an East Village location this fall.


Man about town.

I have a strong suspicion they don't have free bread service.

Uh yah, Outside of a beauitful pork bun shell with a super sweet filling, I didn't really think anything else was too exciting. Steamed ribs with black beans, tasteless, sticky rice wrapped in lotus, kind of tasteless, shumai were on par with any other place. Shrimp and chive dumplings were good.

No desire to return.

Not at all.  Daniel and I agreed about this place back in December. I did a quick check on Yelp of the 5 star reviews and found that most of them were given by people with little or no experience reviewing Chinese restaurants.

 

And I said this on Eater when the long line issue first surfaced.

 

It’s not like there aren’t multiple dim sum options around NYC in Manhattan, Sunset Park, and Flushing. I’m sure Tim Wo Han will be good but not good enough to justify jumping through hoops. Of course in a couple of months the Cronut Crowd/Ramen Burger Fanatics will have moved on to the next big thing.
