pacific moon turns more sushi-esque

Received an email from Pacific Moon touting their extended sushi hours:

I continue to be bummed that they have turned away from dim sum (since not many other spots in town really serve it). Have never worked in the restaurant industry, but I think this is a factor of making money, and sushi sells. Sigh. This was the one thing about Asian restaurants that amazed me when I moved back to the States a couple years ago. In Asia, if you serve Thai food, you serve Thai food. If you serve sushi, you serve sushi. There's no hodgepodging it.

I worried about this when they moved from Montgomery to Newport. Their dim sum is really good (so is Grand Oriental's), and it is hard to find dim sum in Cincinnati. If they do away with the dim sum where are myself and all the other Jews in Cincinnati going to go on Christmas Day?

wha??? the dim sum thing is a BIG shame. I would even dare to say it is what made pacific moon so popular...

Sunday Dim Sum at Pacific Moon is usually packed. Hopefully the sushi expansion is just a weekend night thing.

Is Pacific Moon serving dim sum on the weekends? I can find no mention of it on their menu, and got no sense of it the one time I ate lunch there.

The whole dim sum question was driving me crazy so I just called Pacific Moon. They will begin serving dim sum again on October 6th. I'm not sure why they had a hiatus. Admittedly, I haven't been in awhile as I don't much care for the new location. Just as long as they are open for Xmas Day I'm happy.

For future reference: it's Christmas, not "Xmas". The holiday celebrates the birth of Christ, not the birth of "X". Thanks.

Oh please it's common usage. Obviously from my posting name the birth of Christ does not really do a lot for me. Please keep your religous idealogy to yourself!

Vox Populi: (By the way, you are not the voice of the people) It might behoove you to actually do a little research about the origins of the X in Xmas. If you did this, instead of being a hypersensitive weirdo, you would find that this is not offensive at all and is an ancient way to spell Christ. (X comes from the Greek.)
