Duck de Chine Restaurant Review

: The little brick cottage compound, 1949 – The Hidden City, is one of Beijing’s oddest projects---it’s a landscaped square in the middle of a forest of skyscrapers. Duck de Chine, the standout restaurant, is a moody, romantic spot in dark green marble and overstated wood. Come here during lunchtime to enjoy some sunshine and a full dim sum menu---including duck dumplings. Or arrive in the evening, stop by the Bollinger Champagne bar, then watch your bird being roasted on the open fire. Enjoy the Ultimate Duck Set, which snips, garnishes and roasts all parts of the duck in ways you’ve never imagined (duck feet with mustard sauce, for example).
