One of New York’s fastest growing dim sum restaurants has acquired an impressive new space by the Manhattan bridge.
Dim Sum Palace is a popular Chinese restaurant that focuses on traditional made-to-order Cantonese dishes with a special emphasis (naturally) on Dim Sum. The restaurant was established as an effort to share the founders favorite childhood dishes with the good people of New York, and today the restaurant operates five unique locations across Manhattan. At the moment, Dim Sum Palace can currently be found in NoHo, Flatiron, Koreatown, Hells Kitchen, and south of Central Park.
Now, the team is currently getting ready to launch their sixth expansion to date, moving in to a brand new space at 27 Division Street. The space was formerly home to Sunshine Seafood Restaurant, another popular Chinese restaurant that was known for its seafood and Dim Sum. While Google still lists Sunshine as “open”, disappointed Yelp reviews have remarked that the restaurant is currently “temporarily closed for renovations”, and all of our attempts to reach out to Sunshine have been met with a dead phone line.
The location is relatively spacious though, and is well-suited to meet the needs of Dim Sum Palace. The space is estimated to seat a total of 196 guests inside, which makes this new location one of the largest Dim Sum Palaces to date. The location also offers four unique VIP rooms in the basement for private events and special occasions. According to a sample menu provided by Dim Sum Palace, guests can expect to enjoy Cantonese delights like sea clam chow fun with black bean sauce, stew beef brisket noodle soup, congee with sliced fish, diced pork with sweet corn on rice, pan fried noodles with lobster, and of course a very wide variety of delectable Dim Sum dumplings.
While the space is busy transitioning from Sunshine Seafood Restaurant to Dim Sum Palace, the Dim Sum Palace team is currently getting ready to meet with the community board to acquire a new liquor license for the space. They are currently proposing operating hours of 10:00 AM – 2:00 AM Sunday through Thursday, and 10:00 AM – 4:00 AM on Friday and Saturday.
