I'm going to be 40

Poll #967443 Birthday lunch

Simon reminded me this morning that it's my 40th birthday this Saturday and I thought it would be nice to meet up with friends for dim sum as a lunch into late lunch into afternoon tea thing. We have tickets for Loudon Wainwright in the evening, though later afternoon/early evening drinking might occur too... Whether you can make it or not, where is your favourite dim sum restaurant in central London?

Somewhere else being...

If you're free on Saturday when would suit you?

I'll roll up whenever I can

If you're likely to come along, how many people will you be? Multiple personalities have to share a chair...


I also like the idea of a one-month-after get-together; we plan to be in the Bay Area weekend of May 19th and I know there must be nice dim sum places there too ;-)

There are lovely places for dim sum in the Bay Area, many of them quite suitable for large groups of friends...

d'you want a list of recommendations in the City, South Bay, or East Bay?

happy birthday in advance!

or the Peninsula--Ming's in E.Palo Alto.
Early happy birthday, and enjoy your first of several (one hopes) dim sum celebratory meals.

I've heard good things about Mings and I like the place in Santana Row but it would be lovely to have a list of places to try out, thanks ;)

It turns out that I had forgotten that Neil and I have a previous engagement. I am so sorry. It would have been lovely to see you.
