This is a great list (linked to it from Jennifer Biggs DM article). I'm not a foodie but I do try new places around town so this (& Biggs) gives some great insight. Thanks. Do you have an update?

Hi Anne! I received the information via email from the Director of Marketing of Slider Inn. I'm sorry if their plans changed.

We called Slider Inn midtown numerous times just before and then after 5pm but got no answer. Others said they were not open.

Hi Kane, They originally planned to be open and told me so, but ended up deciding to close. I'm sorry the plans changed; that does happen sometimes. Hopefully you were able to find somewhere else on the list!

Really appreciate this being on the internet. These days, everything is on the internet so not having this list (and their times) would have been a disappointment. Thank you for putting your time and energy into it! Don't forget Christmas ?

The new restaurant Dim Sum King on Summer will be open Thanksgiving too. I called to ask and confirm. But, their Dim Sum cart service only available until 3 pm. 

Could you add them to the list to help out this new restaurant?

Hi Steve, I think Neil's might be set up as a buffet but you would need to call them to confirm. Have not heard of any others, unfortunately.
