Re: Radian (Dainty Dot) | 120 Kingston Street | Chinatown

Does anyone know if this is the same place that was on a recent Andrew Zimmer show? Not Bizzare Foods, but his other show. If it is, it looks outstanding.

Re: Radian (Dainty Dot) | 120 Kingston Street | Chinatown

Should this restaurant be Chinese food? My gut reaction is yes to keep up with the neighborhood even if it wasn't authentic but maybe not Cuz it would take away from others in vicinity?

The market chooses this ... you cannot zone what kind of food goes where.

Is this building really IN Chinatown? I would say no. Next to it, but not IN it. You have to draw the line somewhere.

DZH -- this building is on the Greenway

10 years from now anything within a block of the Greenway will label itself as "On the Greenway"

The chef husband and wife team opening this restaurant ran arguably the best restaurant in Providence. Them closing up shop and moving to Boston with more room to work with, plus easier access to great ingredients is a huge win for the culinary scene in the area.

The guy won three consecutive contests at this event (http://cochon555.com/) Cant wait for this place to open.

A 3" PVC pipe supplying an A/C unit burst tonight in Townsman in the Radian.

Crazy video from inside:

Re: Radian (Dainty Dot) | 120 Kingston Street | Chinatown

I was watching the latest episode of This Old House today. The homeowners of this seasons project went to a recycled granite yard in Wakefield. They selected granite for their front walkway and the employee at the yard said they it was from the Dainty Dot building in Chinatown, Boston. Thought it was interesting.

Re: Radian (Dainty Dot) | 120 Kingston Street | Chinatown

is it me, or is Chinatown starting to look a bit decontaminated?

Why not dress up a few blocks a bit more like they do Chinatown in San Francisco? i'm not drinking the San Francisco kool-aid. But their Chinatown is awesome.

We could probably move this to the all-Chinatown thread, but I agree that Boston's Chinatown could use a spruce up in its decorations.
