Get some dim sum

Like a Chinese version of tapas, dim sum is just plain fun to eat family style. It’s also fun to get to have a little taste of everything. Oh, and ordering on the fly as things that look good pass by keeps things interesting all meal long. Hone your chopsticks skills at these BARTable sit-down dining experiences where small bites in steamer baskets (often placed on that Lazy Susan rotating table) mark a satiating and soy sauce-soaked Bay Area brunch.
