In brief: I guess the trick to RedFarm is to go for lunch at the expanded UWS location. Be prepared to spend some serious dough on some serious dim sum.

04-22 Red Farm 04-22 Red Farm I did not realize lunch at the uber popular RedFarm would involve some deeper pockets than usual. At $14 for one dim sum dish, that's not something for the faint of heart. Still we had to try. The lemon-yuzu oysters were a swallow of deliciousness and we loved the stuffed jalapeno poppers. The pac-man dumplings, as recommended by the server, tasted standard though what an adorable presentation. And then the soup dumplings. They were much larger than usual, making it almost impossible to eat from a soup spoon without making a huge mess. The meat was especially mushy, but when you take it as a whole I could see an intention to make a soup dumpling that felt like you were taking a bite of solid soup, which is interesting as a concept but not so sure it succeeds in making a dish worth ordering again.
