THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Happy Garden Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This unassuming eatery is a find --- the large, inexpensive menu is filled with Chinese-American classics as well as more interesting traditional items such as jellyfish salad, braised sea cucumber, bean curd in brine with pig's feet and mussels, and sliced chilled beef tendon. Dim sum range from a variety of hot, fresh dumplings to porridges, noodles and small plates like salt-and-pepper shrimp that arrive hot and fresh even mid-afternoon. But the best reason to visit Happy Garden is for the hand-scrawled specials taped to the window; we had two Maine lobsters, fished from a tank right after we ordered, sautéed in an aromatic sauce of scallions and fresh hunks of ginger.
