A tablehopper reader let me know the ~CARNELIAN BY THE BAY~, which is in that bizzare-o 1970s building behind the Ferry Building Marketplace (next to Sinbad’s, another time warp location), is now called ~ONE FERRY PLAZA~, serving dim sum daily.
Reports on Yelp mention authentic tea service, har gow, and more, but there also seems to be a fusion-y “tapas” menu as well, with items that look like something you’d find at a convention hotel reception (think chicken lollipops, Peking duck handrolls, and I quote, “Norwegian Smoked Salmon-Crème Franchise”). At night, it appears to be all about banquet dinners and private events. And then there’s that view. Valet parking for $10. Curious to hear more reports from the field about this one…. Open daily 11am-4pm. 1 Ferry Plz. at Embarcadero and Market, 415-878-6111.
