Hakkasan, London

8 Hanway Place, W1
Tube: Tottenham Court Road
Tel: 44 207 927 7000's insider take:

A backstreet off Tottenham Court Road is the unlikely location for Alan Yau's highly lacquered, low-lit Michelin-starred restaurant. The dining room is divided by antique latticed wood screens from Beijing, which are surrounded by glass wall panels subtly lit in deep blue and purple. The waitresses, dressed in flowing frocks by Hussein Chalayan, are more than a match for the interiors. Succulent platters of dim sum are favorites in both the restaurant and the laid-back Ling Ling bar. Also of note is the roasted silver cod with Champagne and Chinese honey and the Chilean sea bass with Chinese celery and lotus root—flavors that linger (in a good way) long after you emerge from the temple-style doors back into the slightly down-at-heel alleyway.
