A new must-try for dim sum lovers.

I’d like to define 3 Times as a combination of traditional Chinese cuisine and modern restaurant concept. Our mission is not only to bring authentic Chinese food to American customers but also to connect both cultures in a universal language - good food.

On January 13, 2020, New York City witnessed the phenomenal grand opening of 3 Times restaurant’s flagship location at 90 Clinton Street, New York. After months of redesign and renovation, 3 Times is back to feast the awaiting eaters with the most authentic Chinese cuisine and mouth-watering dim sum at its two NYC locations.

Headed by Chef Xu, the legendary dim sum master with over 40 years of cooking experience, 3 Times (@3timesnyc) is a brand new Chinese restaurant dedicated to Southern Chinese dishes and dim sum. Compared to its first location in Union Square (818 Broadway, New York), the flagship location in Lower East Side is designed with more entree options and a much larger kitchen space, which allows the chef's team to showcase their creativity and exceptional culinary talents.

Founded by Jason Zhu in 2019, 3 Times celebrates the traditional and modern interpretation of Chinese cuisines. In addition to the old Chinese saying, “eat 3 times a day,” the restaurant's name also conveys a touching personal story between Jason and Chef Xu. Back in 2012, when Jason was a tour guide, he found it disappointingly hard to eat authentic Chinese food in the U.S. After years of searching, he eventually met Chef Xu, whose recipes were often imitated or purchased by other New York restaurants. The legendary chef was not convinced to join the team until Jason visited her multiple times over the years and impressed her with his passion and persistence.

“I’d like to define 3 Times as a combination of traditional Chinese cuisine and modern restaurant concept,” says Jason, “Our mission is not only to bring authentic Chinese food to American customers but also to connect both cultures in a universal language - good food.”

Both the Lower East Side and Union Square locations are open from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm from Sunday to Thursday, and 11:00 am to 11:00 pm on Saturday and Friday. The restaurant is available for take-out, delivery and catering services.
