Vltava

A central avenue of all things hip, Sanlitun is known for housing the goliaths of gourmet dining spots in Beijing. But sometimes a foil is what an area needs to call itself truly diverse. That’s where Beijing's latest Czech restaurant, Vltava, comes in.

Ponte

When we heard Annie's was preparing to launch a new fine-dining concept under the name Ponte, we were a bit skeptical. Annie’s strength has always been its ability to offer a unique quality-to-price ratio, offering authentic Italian food, prepared by Italian chefs, to all kinds of clients. But could it ever go upscale? Turns out, it can, but all while retaining Annie's family-friendly and approachable vibe.

Furongji

With dumpling-making classes and pizza dinners in full swing at their covert neighboring venue space on Baochao, The Orchid team is shaking things up in the hutongs, no doubt. They’ve now unveiled Furongji, a new laidback dim sum spot, steps away from the charming boutique hotel – essentially completing the trifecta.

50/50

With a no-frills decor, new Xingfucun cocktail bar 50/50 put most of their resources towards an impressive back bar, which features all kinds of unique high-quality whiskies, gins and agave spirits which can accommodate both avid spirit connoisseurs and newbies alike.

Keaami Thai by Tiago

The mall-dwellers, Mediterranean cuisine veterans at Tiago just opened Keaami, their very first venture into Thai cusine. Tiago’s take on Thai is carefree, colorful and hip. With vibrant couches, crocodile prints and bamboo details all over, from a distance it looks like someone dropped buckets of paint on the dull Chaoyang Joy City corridors. But far from being overwhelming, Keaami’s attire looks so fresh and compelling, it begs you to enter and peek at the menu.

Super Dog

Super Dog is a shabby neon-lit stand in Sanlitun SOHO that serves up mega-cheap hot dogs and sides, to wash down with a soda from the fridge, stocked with A&W root beer and vanilla Coke

Located in Topwin Center, the shop specializes in loaded cronuts – croissant meets donut – served with a mountain of artificially colored toppings, hard frozen ice cream and sparkles.

Nemo&Bu

It’s the middle of winter, which means any meal that is hot and spicy is exactly what the doctor ordered. Nemo&Bu has that covered with lots of spice (malatang) and everything nice (cat-friendly!).

Fang Bar

The Other Place is getting crowded. Hutong hipsters can now celebrate a new addition to the stacked lineup after El Nido and Taco Stop: Fang Bar of Fangjia past. The cool cocktail establishment quietly took over the empty shack of bar space across the courtyard and is back to slinging eccentric craft creations.
