Nom Wah, one of my favorite dim sum spots in Manhattan Chinatown, and the city’s oldest, will now be the setting/subject of a movie that begins shooting this summer – not a documentary, but a full-on movie-movie, with a plot that involves four distinct stories, eventually intersecting as the various individuals involved pass through the doors of the restaurant.

You can read a bit more on the movie’s website, watch a brief teaser, and even sign up to be an extra in the film. Background work is unpaid, but you could keep your fingers crossed that on-set catering is handled by the restaurant – I’d happily get paid in dumplings and shrimp rice rolls.
