Golden Unicorn, Wednesday at Noon

Welcome back to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographer Daniel Krieger visits some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day.


One of the great food world pastimes, both for Chinese families and American New Yorkers, is midday dim sum. The carts, the trays, the steamed boxes, the pushy ladies trying to get you to take their dishes, scissoring certain items for sharing—it's a fabulous weekend or weekday activity for groups both large and small. One favorite, the giant Golden Unicorn in Chinatown, has all the trappings of a classic dim sum spot, serving both entry level items like shu mai and more advanced dishes like chicken feet and tripe, and is a popular choice in the neighborhood. Take a look at the scene there last Wednesday afternoon.
