Brooklyn, New York
April 8, 2001
While you wait, watch as families sit at large round tables, pointing at dishes rolled by on carts by waitresses in red dresses and white knee-highs. Conversations will bounce off the ornate dragon sculptures and red velvet walls. Steaming pots and plates will fill the large dining room with the warm aromas of authentic Chinese dim sum.
A quick tip if you're looking to impress your Chinese friends:
When someone pours you a cup of tea, take the index and middle fingers of your right hand and tap them on the table. This is the Chinese way of saying "Thank You" for tea.
