Tim Ho Wan debuts tomorrow on 10th Street and 4th Avenue

The first U.S. location for Hong Kong-based chef Mak Kwai Pui's Michelin-starred dim sum parlor Tim Ho Wan has its soft opening tomorrow.

And the official grand opening will be Jan. 18 here on the northeast corner of Fourth Avenue and 10th Street.

Here are more details from the media advisory via the EVG inbox...

• The dim sum menu features the world-famous BBQ Pork Buns along with other Tim Ho Wan specialties such as the Steamed Rice Roll stuffed with BBQ Pork, Pan Fried Turnip Cake and Steamed Egg Cake. The Deep Fried Vegetable Spring Roll and French Toast with Custard Filling, a Tim Ho Wan spin on the classic French toast, are the two dishes that will be exclusive to the New York restaurant. All items are priced $5.50 or lower and the full menu will be available during the soft opening phase.

• Tim Ho Wan’s Grand Opening will be on January 18th from 3 – 10 pm. Both the date and time were carefully selected based on the Chinese lunar calendar, to bring good luck to the restaurant. To celebrate and kick-off the official opening, there will be a dragon dance performance in front of the restaurant at 3:00pm EST. After the grand opening, Tim Ho Wan will open for normal business hours from Sunday – Thursday 10 am to 10 pm and Friday – Saturday from 10 am – 11 pm.

• During the soft opening phase from Dec. 16 through Jan. 17, Tim Ho Wan will open with limited hours. Lunch service will be from 10 am - 3 pm and dinner service will be from 5 pm – 10 pm. Fridays and Saturdays starting Dec. 23, dinner service will be available until 11.

In 2009, the original 24-seat dim sum eatery in Mongkok, Hong Kong's Kowloon, was reportedly branded the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world. This location marks the 45th Tim Ho Wan worldwide.

The address was last home to Spice, which closed in December 2014.

I assume there will be a constant line around the block for this restaurant.

There probably will be a line but is that always a bad thing? Are the lines at Russ and Daughters and Katz's also bad? This isn't food served in a hoof and it doesn't look like the prices are much higher than in Chinatown.

Can we give it a rest with the Asian restaurants, bagel shops, and sweets places?

At least they changed the signs to green - the bright white was brutal

I just walked by and saw that workers were removing/replacing 2 large windows because they had already been defaced. Stay classy everyone.

Or just feel free to ruin other people's property/work because you're in the mood.
