Had a very enjoyable dinner last night at Prune with Luxury Girl. We started with a delicious salad of shaved celery with warm blue cheese toast (the cheese was like butta). I followed up with a whole grilled branzino with fennel oil and gros sel and Luxury Girl has a lamb blade chop with Greek salad. The staff was helpful and friendly and made the warm (hot really) evening, a little more tolerable. The restaurant is small and noisy but the I would certainly go back.

We took advantage of the rainy day and went down to Doyers Street to try the dim sum at Nom Wah Tea Parlor. It turned out to be a good choice. We were seated quickly in one of the red booths and besides a short wait to pick up our order, the service was excellent. We ordered:
House special roast pork bun; cilantro & scalion rice roll; turnip cakes; sticky rice in bamboo leaf; shrimp sui mai; shrimp dumplings; taro dumplings; shrimp and chive dumplings; shanghainese soup dumplings; salt pepper shrimp; and Chinese greens with oyster sauce. Your blogger's brother declared possibly the best dim sum he has had!
