chef Daniel Boulud

This tour de force from celebrity chef Daniel Boulud showcases the "Jay-Z of the restaurant world's" skills, honed by operating his world-famous French restaurants in New York, to delicious effect. Anchoring the high-profile tenants within the dining and nightlife complex at Ch’ien Men 23 (formerly the Legation Quarter), Maison Boulud occupies the restored site of the former American embassy, its decor - featuring two symmetrical white staircases, a Versailles fountain, refined mahogany wood furnishings, white columns and neoclassical chandeliers - was inspired by French glamour from the 18th century to the chic 1930s. Led by Executive Chef Brian Reimer and General Manager Nicolas Socquet, the kitchen prepares fine cuisine featuring traditional French flavors combined with exotic elements such as Middle Eastern spices. Entrees run the gambit from tender salmon to beef (try the famous DB Burger topped with truffles), but the desserts are equally enticing; almost all featuring fresh fruit. This place is certainly pricey, but their popular weekend brunch (available Sat and Sun, 11am-4pm) is a better value at RMB 98-238. Voted “Best French (High End),” "Best Wine List," "Best Service," "Outstanding for Impressing Visitors," "Outstanding Decor," "Outstanding Brunch," and "Non-Chinese Restaurant of the Year" in the Beijinger’s 2011 Reader Restaurant Awards.
