Originally opened in 2008 as both a Peruvian and Cantonese restaurant, owner and culinary director Darren Wan decided to reconceptualize the already successful restaurant in 2010 into the chic, upscale and exclusively Cantonese format that it is today.

Melding traditional Chinese cuisine with a hip and contemporary venue, RED EGG caters to those looking for excellence in their cuisine as well as in the ambiance they want to enjoy it in. In addition to the Cantonese and Szechuan specialties menu, RED EGG features classic Cantonese dim sum throughout the day.

This restaurant near bustling Canal Street is close to many subway lines. Meter and street parking is difficult, but somewhat easier after 7. Parking lots are available one short block south.

This place is great! The atmosphere is so amazing. I ordered the shrimp dumplings which are signature here and I never regret it. The beef and broccoli is hands down the best I've had in all of Manhattan. The steamed pork buns and chicken wings are also a good pick. They have a special lunch menu which includes appetizers as...

Very fresh ingredients, well prepared. I've been here twice and would return often. The service is very attentive and the food is exceptional. Whether you want dim sum or a lunch special or a full dinner, Red Egg is a great go to. Try the Bok Choy!

Instead of selecting Dim Sum items from a cart, you order them from a long list. Thus, they arrive piping hot in bamboo steamer baskets. We took note of the fact that most of the diners were Asian-- a good sign that the food here is delicious and authentic.

Located in New York's Chinatown area, this is a terrific place for a family to eat. We were 4 adults and a 5 year-old boy, and we were hungry when we got there. Service was quick and efficient, which was especially appreciated by the 5 year-old! The menu is excellent, accommodating the tastes of the more daring, the conventional, and... More

I love dim sum, used to live in Chinatown and went often. But now that I live out of the country, I can only have dim sum when visiting. Never having been to Red Egg, I picked this place after some research for my anual dim sum brunch for several reasons: 1) it got great reviews 2) it's vegetarian friendly... More

Red Egg is the perfect Chinatown experience--excellent service, authentic food and a menu that is approachable and understandable (even to out of town guests with limited knowledge of true Chinese cuisine). Unlike some of the huge and overrun Chinese eateries in NYC, this has the feeling of a fine restaurant--but completely affordable.

Great place in Chinatown! We were here for Christmas Eve and didn't have a reservation, but were able to get a table as we cam early. Many people arrived after us. We ate Calamari, Dim Sum, and some skewers or chicken and beef. Good spot and the food comes out quickly. We probably ate too much at the bill was... More

my local friends took me to this restaurant in the heart of Chinatown. The place looks clean. We were there for dim sum on a Sunday. It was pretty busy. The have big tables for large groups but they do require everyone (at least most are present) before seating you. We were there for 11 so it wasn't a big... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
