Where to Eat in New Orleans Right Now
The gist: The family that opened Kenner’s Little Chinatown have returned after selling the restaurant and traveling the country. Dian Xin—itself another name for dim sum—is exactly what locals have been waiting for.
The food: 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.
The cost: Dim sum $5 - $12, mains and shareables $9 - $16.
