Dong Si Shi Tiao Jia 34 Hao Yuan, Dongcheng Qu, Beijing Shi, China, 100001
A local favorite for Peking duck, Chef Dong's menu has evolved over the years to encompass a more contemporary style of food. The geoduck clam dish, presented in an ice-ball and served with Sichuan peppers, is one such effort, but the mainstay is...

Haidilao is just as famous for what happens before dinner—those waiting for a table get free snacks and drinks, complimentary manicures, and their shoes shined, as well as access to board games and toys—as for the Sichuan hot pot it serves. With...

Dumpling chain Din Tai Fung has gone from humble beginnings in Taiwan some 40 years ago to a presence in 10 countries, including Singapore, the United States, Australia, and Japan. The secret of its success lies in one item—xiaolongbao—a type of...

Building 1 No 11 Sanlitun Road Chaoyang, Sanlitun Road, 东城区北京市 China, 100027
Most visitors come for the Peking duck (and rightly so). But Jing Yaa Tang also offers impeccable drinks—try their eponymous drink that mixes whisky with a dash of cinnamon and orange. While the menu doesn't hew to any particular regional cuisine,...

China, Beijing Shi, Chaoyang Qu, Maizidian St, 6号楼
Dumplings are a northern Chinese staple—inexpensive, hearty, and with a variety of fillings—and the boiled dumplings (shuijiao) at Baoyuan don’t disappoint. What sets them apart from your corner dumpling shop is the colored...

China, Beijing Shi, Dongcheng Qu, Xinzhong St, 新中街乙12号 邮政编码: 100001
After decades of rule by innocuous lagers, a small revolution is brewing in Beijing's beer scene, with a handful of small-scale brew operations popping up over the past few years. Great Leap is among them and brings together foreign beer makers...

This Japanese-style izakaya offers quality pub grub with a full range of alcoholic beverages–the Japanese owner is something of a sake sommelier. The okara tofu is absolutely incredible, silky soft and savory, and is a must-order. There's plenty...

China, Beijing Shi, Dongcheng Qu, 沙滩北街15号 邮政编码: 100006
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...

This venue closed in September 2017. How many restaurants can boast direct views of Tiananmen Square and Mao's Mausoleum? Capital M can, and its terrace is one of Beijing's best places for alfresco drinks. The restaurant serves continental...

88 Shuangqing Rd, WuDaoKou, Haidian Qu, China, 100083
Vegetarianism in China has a long history, and the locals have become masters at faking the taste and texture of meat. Veggie Tiger (Suhu), however, has broadened beyond the typical fake kebabs for an inspired menu of vegetarian dishes, including...

67 Xiaojingchang Hutong, Dongcheng Qu, Beijing Shi, China, 100007
Though it’s mere minutes from the chaotic pedestrian street Nanluoguxiang, Dali Courtyard, in a charming brick courtyard house, is as tranquil as the nearby streets are buzzing. Dinner is a set menu here (from ¥150 per person), a small...

Finding decent Western-style food in the hutongs is surprisingly difficult—Stuff'd is a rare bright spot in a sea of mediocre burgers and shabby sandwiches. Located in a cozy hutong courtyard just off of Wudaoying, Stuff'd offers hearty meats …...

It doesn't make sense—but one of the hottest dining spots in Beijing is located in a showroom full of designs from Georg Jenson. It’s high-concept Danish fusion that uses eclectic ingredients that may be a bit too pretentious for some. Persevere,...

This intimate restaurant in a rapidly gentrifying area of the hutongs features a small menu of rustic Italian fare. Quality is high, though portions are small. It's a favorite for expat Europeans and white-collar Chinese couples, as the dim...

Dongcheng, China, 100007
This slick eatery specializes in homestyle Vietnamese fare in spacious hutong digs. It’s as close as you’ll get to Saigon up here in the Chinese capital—but that’s not the only reason to come. The cocktails make use of everything from tart basil...

Chaoyang, China, 100001
Some argue that true Sichuanese food can only really be enjoyed outdoors, and served up by surly waitresses. Transit would disagree with you. This elegant restaurant proves that fine Sichuanese dining is a perfectly respectable thing. Flavors are...

16 Dongsi 6th Alley, DongSi, Dongcheng Qu, Beijing Shi, China, 100001
Skip the (dubious) street skewers for the generous lamb kebabs at Crescent Moon. Authenticity abounds at this clean, roomy restaurant. The friendly owner can often be found smoking a hookah in the back, and the staff speak to each other in the...

As the same suggests, Country Kitchen specializes in the rustic culinary traditions of Northern China—with a few dishes pulled from the Sichuanese repertoire. You might forget you are in the ultra-luxe Rosewood Hotel, as the surroundings exude a...

Impossibly stylish, this atmospheric restaurant in the 1949 Hidden City complex serves up Peking duck to the clattering of a gong. The wine menu is expansive, and we highly recommend exploring the Chinese wines (yes, you read that correctly) on...

A cooking school by day (Wednesdays and Sundays, to be specific), Black Sesame Kitchen hosts a 10-course family-style meal on Tuesday and Friday nights that allows visitors to sample Chinese dishes from a variety of regional cuisines. Most who...
