The family behind Kenner’s Little Chinatown have returned after selling the restaurant and traveling the country. And Dian Xin—itself another name for dim sum—is exactly what locals have been waiting for. The menu runs the gamut from small plates like Xiao Long Bao clear through heartier entrees. Not a single dish on the menu misses, be it the Jianbing, Salt and Pepper Squid, or good old-fashioned General Tso’s Chicken.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
