China's capital city won't let your 5-Star taste buds go unfulfilled. From fine sushi to excellent steakhouses and European fusion cuisines-- Beijing has it all. You'll find the most exotic and rare bottles of wine on display in some of the city's finer establishments, while the 5-Star local favorites like the Peking Duck may alter your understanding of fine dining.
Hatsune is Beijing's finest Japanese sushi restaurant and a gathering point for the city's finest food connoisseurs. With excellent decor, the mood is set for a romantic evening or a classy business setting.
For a local 5-star dining option, Da Dong Roast Duck Restaurant is an instant favorite. You'll get the wonderful chance to try Beijing's specialty food- Peking Duck, in a classy setting, surrounded by other lovers of gourmet cuisine.
Cafe Europa draws a distinct crowd of diners, those looking for an excellent steak served in simplicity and with sides and chocolate mousse menu that make every visit a filling and delightful excursion.
A newcomer to the Beijing food scene, SALT has wowed Beijingers with their infusion cuisine that doesn't sacrifice taste in favor of design. The classy, modern setting makes for a pleasant atmosphere to enjoy the rich drinks menu or explore new cuisines.
The Orchard is an expat favorite, and for good reason. The charming setting, simple but pleasing organic menu and friendly staff make this a place you feel you've been dining at your entire life.
The Vineyard is a delightful place to take a date for fine dining and 5-star service. You'll enjoy the direct-off-the-vine taste to the food and wine. Though not your traditional 5-star dinning hall, the food, service and decor bump this into Beijing's highest realm.
For 5-star dessert, head to Bellagio. Here you'll find identical waitresses (with identical hair cuts and uniforms) serving their speciality dessert- shaved ice and bean ice cream. The food is delicious, but the desserts at Bellagio are notoriously good.
The good old fashioned French cuisine at Petit Paris is well worth trying. Located in Sanlitun, you'll find it a quiet and pleasant place for a fine meal amid Beijing's bars and clubs.
For sultry Jazz done right, head to Aria Jazz and Wine bar where the plush seating and old-world murals will lull you into a relaxed state after a delicious contemporary meal.
Finally, Lotus Blue cannot come recommended highly enough. Located right on lake HouHai, you'll find an excellent view complimenting the fine Thai cuisine and other-worldly decor.
Beijing has much to offer, especially if your pockets are full and your limits are high.
