As precious as a jewel box, and often as pricey, this red, lacquer-trimmed 70-seat restaurant hidden away in the Peninsula Hotel reveals the hotelier's Asian roots. Come for upscale dim sum, stylishly presented, and luxury-laden dishes such as steamed fish, XO duck, miso-braised pork belly, and lobster consommé. A patio that seats up to 60 during warmer months lets you revel in a relaxing meal four stories above the madding crowds of Michigan Avenue. Though fans admire
the attentive, professional service, some warn that diners with larger appetites might leave feeling unsatisfied.
