The Courtyard

95 Donghuamen Ave.
Beijing , China

Near the Forbidden City, this restored siheyuan (multi-building structure surrounding a courtyard) is home to one of American lawyer Handel Lee’s creations. Opened in 1997, this dinner-only restaurant specializes in its own brand of fusion, although dishes are mainly Asian or Western. The castle-like gray stone facade contrasts with the interior's white tones and glass. Chef Rey Lim creates starters like charred Rougie foie gras, and main dishes include crispy skin yellowtail. The wine list numbers over 600, and there's an art gallery in the basement.
