Default Maison Boulud à Pékin - First Restaurant in Beijing Opened by A Celebrity Chef - 北京布鲁宫法餐厅

Daniel Boulud, a Michelin two-star chef known for his signature
restaurant Daniel in New York, opened the doors of Maison Boulud, his
seventh restaurant, in June 2008 in the heart of Beijing. The eatery
is his first outside the United States.

Maison Boulud is located in one of five buildings in a compound that
housed the U.S. Embassy in Beijing from 1903 to 1949, and which has
been converted into an upmarket development called the Legation
Quarter, just east of Tiananmen Square. The renovation looks lovely,
and as you enter the restaurant you come into a large reception hall
with an impressive double staircase at the back, with the reception
desk to the left. Further to the left, through a doorway, is the bar
area, with lots of sleek looking tables and chairs and a nice, though
smallish, bar.

The summer menu at Maison Boulud, with 428 yuan ($63) for a fixed
price set, features dishes such as roasted beet salad with Chinese
black walnut goats' cheese and crispy suckling pig with daikon

The history of the building is impressive. Former U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger secretly met Chinese premier Zhou Enlai there in
1971, a year before President Richard Nixon's visit to China.

The compound, built in 1903 by American architect Sid H. Nealy, also
houses Japanese restaurant Shiro Matsui, run by Hong Kong restaurateur
David Yeo, and Sadler, with two Michelin-star Italian chef Claudio
Sadler.Also in the compound is a Patek Philippe shop, so if you have
money left over after dinner, you can spend it there
