$$$ The City Chinese

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

World-class Peking duck—arguably the best in London—is the big thing at this Chinese trendsetter near Liverpool Street in The City. The Irish-sourced glazed Peking duck is marinated in five Chinese spices, cherrywood-roasted in a Beech oven, and carved ceremoniously by a duck specialist in the middle of a sleek modernist dining room, full of knowing Chinese and City corporate account diners. Diners can dab a caviar-topped dim sum trilogy with soy sauce (hope for the pan-fried Szechuan dumpling with Australian tiger prawns) while soups like truffled seafood with Osmanthus flower are rich and pungent. Sip white peony tea between courses of wok-fried Scottish lobster and Duke of Berkshire pork with XO sauce, but only attempt the epic 15-course tasting menu if you have time and a big appetite.
