Peking duck skin at Eight Tables by George Chen
Nestled above China Live is George Chen’s high-end and secluded dining experience, offering a tasting menu ($225) at just eight tables. You’ll experience many courses of si fang cai, or “private chateau cuisine,” but one of the more decadent tastes is a bite of crisp yet delicate, paper-thin Peking duck skin, topped with kaluga caviar and presented over a shrimp chip. The combination of fatty, briny, and crispy, along with a sip of 2011 Louis Roederer rosé Champagne, makes for a pairing you’re sure to remember—and crave. – Black Board Eats (01.10.18)
