Eight Tables, seven courses

It’s a new year — all hail the pig— and China Live’s decadent upstairs restaurant, Eight Tables by George Chen, is advertising a new menu to match. The seven-course option costs $175 (still a sizable red envelope) but that’s down from the usual $225 (or $325 for the all-out chef’s table tasting menu). It still features Eight Table’s hits like a “Four Seas” caviar dumpling (stuffed with Russian Osetra caviar, trout roe, bay scallop, and sea urchin) and upside down sizzling rice soup with poached lobster. The seven course menu is available now, but only offered Tuesday to Thursday. – Eater San Francisco (03.11.19)
