I cringe like nails on a chalkboard every time I hear the words "dim sum" spoken around this joint. Is the staff really trained to say and use the words dim sum constantly? The menu is as dim sum as a NYC dirty water dog cart is tapas. There is nothing dim sum about the place, not one Asian ingredient in the kitchen except a staff's package of Korean Hong Ramyun noodle soup with soy peptide on the rack off to the side. Why use the term dim sum at a Southern resto? This baffles and annoys me since the menu here is really more tapas based on the portion, ingredients and techniques used. But whatever, I'm game to see what they're doing here after a few months of pitching dim sum to the gullible masses.
frankfurter gyro? I don't care, I'm eating it just because it has a weird name. The skin flute was good but the rest of the mess was kinda bland. I just don't get it, I guess.
You can easily blow over $50 per person here in a blink of an eye... Wait, you will blow over $50 per person. For that much scratch you would think you will come outta there with a full pouch. Not so much. The portions are ridiculously anemic. They push the dishes with conviction, sometimes even putting it down on the table like you ordered it off the menu and walk away. I had to do a double take a couple of times and told him to get his ass back here and take that shit away. The price paid in the end did not give me any more added value... It made me want to go home and cry myself to sleep. They genuinely believe in what they're doing and some dishes are pretty good, I just don't know how long this "concept" will last or should I say the public wants but afterwards we ended up eating half the menu at Octopus Bar, Clermont Lounge for slutty drinks and then late night snacks at Bamboo Luau paired with those nuclear glow in the dark drankz. It was not a cheap night but we fucking had a blast.
