Food and drink
Creative Imperial and Chinese fare that mixes classical traditions and techniques with unusual ingredient combinations. Try the foie gras with sake and the lao Beijing style appetizers.
Beautiful, under-lit environment, though it’s so expansive it can feel a little empty on quiet nights.
Accomplished and ever so slightly snooty - unsurprising for a place that takes itself so seriously.
Close to the southeast corner of the Forbidden City.
High end prices, especially the wine list.
