East Harbor Seafood Palace

Venue Info

Known For

Brunch

Chinese

Sunset Park is booming with dim sum joints, but East Harbor Seafood is probably the best. The gigantic spot offers destination-worthy Cantonese dim sum like flour dumplings stuffed with pork, peanuts, and mushrooms, and fried bean curd vegetable rolls. The place is typically packed on weekends at peak brunch time, and though a 30-minute wait is almost guaranteed, the thrill of making a game-time decision when the carts speed by is worth the wait.
