For a long time, Dim Sum Garden was the preferred dim sum spot for college students to get tipsy. However, as soon as they started charging a $15 corkage fee, all the kids figured out that they could take their backpacks full of cheap beer down the street to Tom’s. Almost a carbon copy of Dim Sum Garden, Tom's has a long menu of things like dumplings, rice plates, and pan-fried vegetables. They don’t generally take reservations, but if you have a big enough group you can reserve their back room.
