The first Chinese restaurant awarded a Michelin star, this upscale eatery is now an international chain with outposts in New York, Miami, Mumbai, and the Middle East. At the flagship location in Soho’s Hanway Place, a dim slate stairway leads down into a sleek subterranean dining room created by renowned French designer Christian Liaigre. Dark wooden screens with elaborate latticework surround candlelit tables and a 52-foot bar serving inventive, Asian-inspired cocktails. The restaurant also features an open kitchen, where chef Tong Chee Hwee prepares lunchtime dim sum as well as signature entrées like roasted silver cod with champagne honey sauce.

Insider Tip:

Customers often complain that the staff is overly focused on the two-hour turnaround time for tables; to avoid feeling rushed, wait until you’ve received your appetizers to order your entrées.
