THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED 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 design of the mega-size Beverly Hills branch recalls the London outpost. A DJ spins music in the corner of the blue-lit-bar area, which has a narrow stretch of lounge seating. 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. Start with a 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 Imperial Shassetra 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. Diners may also encounter steamed red snapper with assam sauce or Chinese honey and black pepper Maine lobster. Round out the 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. A three-course "Taste of Hakkasan" menu ($58) is available as well as additional prix-fixe options that can be requested by groups. Choose from a number of beers (from Japan and China), saké and the serious spirits and cocktail program. Lead sommelier Jesus Evangelista keeps a watchful eye on the esoteric wine list, which includes a number of small producers. There is also a variety of teas. Casually attired clientele mingle amongst more dressy diners, so feel free to come as you are.
