RedFarm is the best modern dim sum restaurant in town, and it now has a second location on the Upper West Side. The soup dumplings might not be the most authentic, but that’s not why you come to RedFarm. You come to RedFarm for downtown vibes and creative food. The UWS location is much like the original, but with more space and fewer people trying to get into 1OAK afterward. Try the Pac Man dumplings and the Katz’s pastrami egg roll.
