Elite Restaurant: Dim Sum College Reunion

This week we met Ben Mandelker and Leah Bojnowski at Elite Restaurant in Monterey Park.

Elite is Ben's favorite spot for dim sum in the L.A. area. He loves it for the food and for the convenience: At Elite, one orders from a menu, as opposed to waiting for a pushcart to come by your table. As Ben says, at the cart restaurants you run the risk of missing out unless you're willing to chase them down.

Ben and Leah have known each other since their college days at Dartmouth, and Leah was visiting from her home in upstate New York. Being that her food choices are limited in her hometown, she was truly excited when Ben suggested that she join him at Elite.

Free Lunch was happy to treat Leah to her first dim sum experience, and Ben was a perfect guide when it came to ordering their meal. As you can see from the photos below, they truly got to enjoy their experience.
