Jonathan's three rules of dim sum.

To be preached only after 1:00 a.m.

The superior dim sum joint shall:

1.) Be staffed by non-English speaking ladies and gents that nonetheless know the menu front to back and can communicate it to you.
2.) Not have a website (but Yelp reviews from hipsters are acceptable).
3.) Not have mojitos on the cocktail menu.

Tonight's dinner choice violated all three, regrettably. But Tristan's birthday was still fun despite the poor dinner, and we took the party to Nellie's following that.

Also, if you want any kind of year-in-review, the moment that has stuck in my mind from 2010 more than any other is this: I went to dim sum on the first weekend of March with mahka42, David, and Romina in San Francisco. After a long wait to get a table, we are finally seated. All three of them tear off pieces of their napkins and use them to clean their plates. Romina: "You should do this, too."
