Hakkasan - new luxury Chinese restaurant in Midtown

Cheeryvisage | Apr 2, 2012 02:40 PM

Opening tomorrow.

From NY Times Diner's Journal:

"High-quality ingredients, including seafood that is often sustainably sourced; waitress dressed by Diane von Furstenberg; and a lavish interior are designed to appeal to an international clientele. Prices reach as high as $888 for an entree of Japanese abalone with black truffle; whole suckling pig is $295 and Peking duck with Kaluga caviar is $345."

Restaurant website here:

So.... anyone planning on trying this place anytime soon?


I noticed the menu (linked in the NY Times article) says the following:

"Prices include VAT at the current rate. A discretionary service charge of 13% will be added to your bill."

Basically, the prices include tax and the tip is an automatic 13%? Or maybe it was a mistake and the restaurant was using the UK menu template and forgot to delete that line....
