Tao Hua Yuan, or, as it's transliterated, Tim's Kitchen, is an upmarket restaurant coming from Hong Kong and Macau decorated with two Michelin stars. Environs are consummately contemporary, with clean lines and a blossoming peach tree as the centerpiece. Service is impeccable, justifying the 10% surcharge. The menu consists primarily of classic Cantonese cuisine: crispy skin pork belly, yifu noodles, braised pomelo in shrimp roe sauce, crystal shrimp with shaved Chinese ham to name a few. For the conspicuous consumer, Tim's also offers several variations on shark's fin, abalone and bird's nest.
