Sureno Restaurant Review

: Mediterranean restaurant Sureño is one of several dining options at The Opposite House in Beijing's Sanlitun Village. The interior is sleek and modern, with orange and brown leather chairs, a wall of windows, and interesting hanging light fixtures composed of light bulbs encased by glass globes. Guests can also opt to dine in the outdoor sunken courtyard, or take a seat at the counter and watch the action in the open kitchen. The cuisine draws inspiration from Spain, Southern France, Greece and Italy. Start with tapas like bruschetta, olives and jamón Ibérico belota, or arancini (manchego and saffron rice balls served with spicy tomato sauce). The rest of the seasonal menu includes risotto, pastas, wood-fired pizzas and steaks. Lunch offerings change weekly and there's also a special featured dish on Friday nights. The large wine program presents about 350 selections.
