If you're comfortable with the sentiment that "dining should be part of a lifestyle experience," you'll love this ultra-chic restaurant. If you think that sounds like pretentious twaddle, try Bellagio's, right next door. The restaurant's name changes from purple to green in translation, and dining at Green T. is a similarly psychedelic experience. The imaginatively prepared food is light, with tea-infused flavors, but the cuisine is beside the point. The minimalist decor and attentive service attracts a fashion-conscious crowd. A new branch of the restaurant, called Green T. House Living, opened in 2006 in the outskirts of Beijing, but isn't really worthwhile unless you think an extra dose of pretentiousness is worth the 45-minute drive.
