Sunset Park dim sum restaurants close
Several of the most popular dim sum restaurants and Chinese banquet halls in Sunset Park have closed this week due to coronavirus fears, according to New York Eater. Some have had declining sales for weeks due to people who link Chinese restaurants to the virus. Among the Sunset Park restaurants that have closed are East Harbor Seafood Palace, Bamboo Garden, Park Asia and Affable. Staffers and managers hope that the restaurants are able to reopen within a month.
