Despite a mostly non-Chinese clientele, the Imperial serves the most authentic Cantonese in the city with flawless execution. A regiment of full-time dim sum chefs trained in Hong Kong produce everything from scratch to ensure optimal freshness. Deep-fried crab claws, usually banquet fare, make a welcome dim sum appearance, along with an addictive banana shrimp roll. Other signature dishes on the à la carte menu include pan-fried scallops garnished with fried garlic milk, and sautéed spinach with minced pork and Chinese anchovies. A soaring Art Deco room with a central staircase leading to a balustrade-lined mezzanine, the Imperial is also the city's most opulent Chinese restaurant, although the dining room could use a 21st-century update. During the day, several tables for two (unusual for a Chinese restaurant) buzz with power-lunchers. Service is friendly and informative, with well-chosen wines to complement the dishes.—Kasey Wilson

Open Mondays through Fridays 11 am to 11:30 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 10:30 am to 11:30 pm.
