Goodbye Oscar’s Brasserie, hello La Chine. The Waldorf Astoria’s elegant dining space welcomes this serene haute cuisine concept, serving up specialties from select regions across China in ways that may surprise even the most discerning diner. Chef Khai Meng helms the kitchen along with Culinary Director David Garcelon, together (with an impeccable staff, of course) reshaping high-end Chinese as we know it. Whet the palate with the already-acclaimed star anise and soy foie gras “cherries” and a selection from the Zhejiang-inspired raw bar, followed by a whole or half duck in chef’s Kong sauce...we could go on. Finish things off with a slice of Illanka dark chocolate and Szechuan pepper cake and a cup of rolled oolong for good measure.
