Inside Dale Talde’s Newest Restaurant, a Global Dim Sum Affair

Rice & Gold is restaurant number eight for Talde

Following a quiet A.M. entry last week with just breakfast, Dale Talde’s Asian dim sum restaurant Rice & Gold is fully up-and-running in Chinatown’s Hotel 50 Bowery — this as he navigates a $3.5 million lawsuit over at Atlantic Social.

The largely Asian spot pulls flavors from countries spanning the world, like with its lamb neck barbecue bao, jerk roast duck, and corned beef tongue skewers. In the morning, the 180-seat space has an entire section devoted to dumplings, plus concessions to a traditional American breakfast with eggs, pancakes, avocado toast, and more. The full dinner menu is below, and breakfast is here.

Rice & Gold fits neatly into Talde’s preferred aesthetic of large rooms filled with bold colors and graffiti. Talde and his team — Jae Lee is Rice & Gold’s executive chef — will also provide room service for the hotel.

This is Talde’s eighth restaurant, and one of three in Hotel 50 Bowery. Initially known for his run on Top Chef, Talde parlayed that appearance into what is now Three Kings Restaurant Group, running three Taldes, two rooftop bars, and more.

Rice & Gold is now open for breakfast weekdays from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and weekends from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. Dinner is daily from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m., with lunch and brunch to come.
