Description:

Chef Ivan Yuen’s downright opulent menu—brimming with truffled dumplings, abalone and lobster tails—redefines what fine Chinese fare should look and taste like. You’ll find more gravies, marinades, and garlic-rich sauces here than at your typical French brasserie. Veal shanks come lacquered in a Maotai liquor glaze. Slices of beef brisket, rubbed down with chu hou sauce, bake blissfully in ancient Chinese casseroles. And a mélange of flounder, king crab, scallops, and sea cucumber sits in a special elixir so secretive the waitstaff has been forbidden to reveal what’s in it. Expect a hefty tab and uneven wait times but also the most decadent Chinese dining experience in town.
