Dim Sum Go-Go
A red-and-white color scheme spruces up this Chinatown dim sum joint, where dumplings (more than 24 types) are the focus. A neophyte-friendly menu is divided into categories like “fried,” “baked” and “steamed”; to avoid tough decisions, order the dim sum platter, whose artful array of ten items includes juicy steamed duck and mushroom dumplings and the offbeat, slightly sweet panfried dumplings filled with pumpkin. Prices are a bit higher than at your average dim sum emporium. For a discount, swing by daily from 10am to 4pm, when every dish costs a dollar less.

Just a very standard, very solid, dim sum spot in ol' Chinatown. There are plenty of better options in the area (and by "in the area", I mean literally within 2 blocks), like Jing Fong and Nom Wah, but you can't go wrong with Dim Sum Go Go. The menu is laid out well for those less savvy on the whole dim sum vernacular, specifying between steamed, baked, and fried options. 

All in all, this place will get the job done, if the job in question is satisfying a dumpling fix. Feel free to come here if the other, better places nearby are full...or if they're hosting a wedding reception that night (this is Chinatown after all, and I've run into this predicament on more than one occasion).
