The concept-restaurant that has spread through New York, Las Vegas and Miami also has a home in Mexico City's Camino Real Hotel in Polanco. From the same team that created London's infamous Asia de Cuba, China Grill is, like it's dishes, large and easy on the eye. Regardless of the name China Grill is not Chinese food but a highly sophisticated fusion of Asian flavours served in massive portions (the idea is to share them with the rest of your table). Highlights include their duck salad or any of the duck mains, the various dumplings, and their dessert menu. The service is traditional and very formal and you can have at points, up to 6 wait-staff looking after you. The decor at China Grill alludes to Marco Polo and various objects obtained in his many trips through the Asian continent.
