Golden Unicorn

18 E Broadway, New York
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Golden Unicorn is above a bank in a Chinatown office building that looks like it was built in the early 1960’s, but that’s part the appeal. When you get off the elevator, there might be a wedding reception going on or there might be a birthday party you can pretend to be a part of. Observe it all while you sit around a big table with nine other friends eating eat custard buns that look like pigs. Unless you want something sweet, skip those buns - but do try the other dim sum. They even serve it at dinner. This is a big restaurant in Chinatown with golden chair covers and golden curtains, and it’s perfect for an affordable group dinner.

Shanghai 21 is a great place to have a group dinner in Chinatown (but you might have to wait in line for it).
