The Overview

Updated on September 9, 2014

For refined roast birds in the heart of the CBD, Beijing's expense account set heads to Lunar 8, a pan-Asian, a la carte restaurant in the belly of the ultra-luxe Fairmont Hotel. Only the plumpest 45-day-old birds are selected to grace the open kitchen's tall brick ovens, where they're roasted for longer than tradition dictates.

Hungry diners might need an extra appetizer, but the finished product, leaner and les oily than at Beijing's more venerable duckeries, is worth the wait. Its singular fragrance and flavor is due in part to the fruit wood in the ovens and the chef's signature rub of medicinal herbs and spices. Fowl fans should also tackle the delectable chicken tikka, roasted onsite in tandoor ovens.
