Hakkasan Restaurant Review

: Hakkasan made its debut in London in 2001, and has since opened a second location in that city along with expanding worldwide, including U.S. branches in Miami Beach, New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco. The mega-size Beverly Hills branch experienced a redesign to recall the London outpost, affecting its entrance and interior, and expanding the blue-lit-bar area with a narrow stretch of lounge seating. In the corner, a DJ spins house music. White marble and wooden latticework divide the dining area into "cages," and there is also a private dining room called The Lotus. The extensive modern Cantonese menu is the creation of executive chef Ho Chee Boon. Skip the salt and pepper squid in favor of the steamed dim sum platter or crispy duck salad, a tower of duck, greens, pomegranate, shallots and pine nuts. Want to impress? Then splurge by ordering the whole Peking duck with Tsar Nicoulai Reserve caviar. The black truffle roasted duck is very good and a bit more reasonably priced. From the fish and seafood section of the menu, go for the roasted silver cod with Champagne and Chinese honey. Round out your meal with the Hakka noodles or tofu and aubergine claypot. The black sesame dessert features chocolate sesame crémeux with yuzu ice cream and sesame florentines. Among the prix-fixe options are a vegetarian menu ($68), two tasting menus ($88, $116) and a three-course "Taste of Hakkasan" menu offered until 7 p.m. To complement your meal, choose from a number of beers (from Japan and China), wines by the glass, saké and the serious spirits and cocktail program. There is also a variety of teas. Casually attired clientele mingle amongst more dressy diners, so feel free to come as you are.
