A stark contrast to the more traditional Chinese restaurants in the city, Hakkasan takes dim sum to the fine dining realm. Dark, sexy and alluring, the San Francisco branch is located smack dab in the middle of Downtown; diners look out onto Market and Geary streets below as they move prawn and chive dumplings and stir fry scallops to their mouths. While a la carte items are available for lunch and dinner, a Taste of Hakkasan menu is also available for lunch during the weekday, with a small appetizer, main dish and dessert—namely, Hakkasan's famed macarons. You'll be spending a pretty penny here, but it's worth the splurge.
