Tao's next monthly Dim Sum Sunday Brunch will be this Sunday, May 26, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be some new dumplings on the menu (available here), say owners Cara and Cecile Stadler, but be forewarned that it's Bowdoin graduation weekend, so reservations may be already tough to come by. The restaurant will also be open for dinner on Sunday.
Fans of Tao will want to mark their calendars for Thursday, June 13, when the restaurant will celebrate its one-year anniversary with a special prix-fixe dinner. Details will be forthcoming.
