Baijia Dayuan (Báijiā dà zháimén)

Baijia Dayuan (Báijiā dà zháimén) Review

Staff dressed in rich-hued, Qing-dynasty attire welcome you at this grand courtyard house. Bowing slightly, they'll say "Nin jixiang" ("May you have good fortune"). The mansion's spectacular setting was once the garden of Prince Li, son of the first Qing emperor. Cao Xueqin, the author of the Chinese classic Dream of the Red Chamber, is said to have lived here as a boy. Featured delicacies include bird's-nest soup, braised sea cucumber, abalone, and authentic imperial snacks. On weekends, diners are treated to short, live performances of Beijing opera.
