Deca Restaurant + Bar
Set in the 12th-floor lobby of the Ritz-Carlton, Deca Restaurant + Bar opened in 2010 and offers contemporary American cuisine in an Art Deco-inspired dining room. The restaurant is designed in warm gold tones with plush banquettes, contemporary art, and vibrant flowers, all surrounding a large central fountain. At polished wooden tables, diners enjoy signature dishes from executive chef Mark Payne, such as the fruits de mer seafood tower and steak frites with truffle mushrooms. Patrons can also visit for brunch, afternoon tea, or handmade cocktails in the adjacent bar, where glass walls offer views of the John Hancock Center.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Aside from Peking duck, no dish is more beloved among Beijingers than the hot pot, a Chinese version of fondue. Waiters bring high-quality cuts of thinly sliced beef for diners to dunk into the individual pots of boiling broth and then dip into a sesame sauce, along with superfresh vegetables like shiitake and enoki mushrooms, lotus root and Chinese cabbage. The beaded-curtain banquettes conceal everyone from families to Chinese celebrities.
