This old-school standby is as popular with daytime dim sum aficionados as it is with the post-clubbing crowd; after midnight the tablecloths come off, but the reasonably priced Cantonese and Chinese-American cuisine is served into the wee hours. Regulars find reason to return, especially for the seafood specialties that include traditional Cantonese lobster with pork and hoisin sauce, or steamed striped bass with ginger and soy sauce.
