European Food, Chinese Wine at TRB
Set in a renovated temple complex, TRB has stunning surroundings. Led by GM Ignace Lecleir, the staff provides top-notch service. Deemed "contemporary European," the food has no shortage of fans. And for those who enjoy a post-meal walk, The Forbidden City is just a few hundred meters away. All good. But what makes Temple special is the wine collection, especially the Chinese wine list. China has a growing list of quality producers; Temple offers the best selection of them. There are more than 20 options, from the veteran Grace Vineyard to newcomers such as 1421 and Great River Hill, starting at RMB220. If you are in Beijing and interested in local wine, TRB is among the best places to pop a bottle or two.
