Hakkasan Beverly Hills is a member of the UK-based restaurant group that has restaurants in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, New York and Las Vegas, among other cities. The group trades in high-end Chinese food for the 1%, the kind of clientele that just might fork over $288 at lunch for a whole Peking duck topped with caviar. The whole place smells of jasmine, punctuated occasionally with the smell of truffle oil wafting from a passing plate of food. At lunch a dim sum menu is offered, including scallion-intense rectangular Shanghai siew long bao dumplings, "prawn toast" that's presented as spheres of sesame-crusted buoyant shrimp, and all manner of seared and steamed dumplings. There are also salads, soups, and pricey entrees, such as the aforementioned duck, and slightly more reasonable dishes like a $37 grilled seabass with Chinese honey, a $68 grilled Wagyu, or a $22 chicken claypot.
