Following the success of its Michelin-starred restaurant in Soho, Yauatcha City will be an all-day dim sum dining experience, complete with two bars, as well as two spacious outside terraces and a large main dining area.
The menu at Yauatcha City will embody the Chinese dim sum teahouse concept, where friends and family gather to catch up over excellent dim sum, wok dishes, tea and cocktails. It will present authentic Cantonese dishes with a modern influence, offering a wide range of steamed, baked, grilled and fried dim sum such as Scallop shui mai, Prawn and beancurd cheung fun and Venison puffs. To complement the cuisine, the drinks menu will comprise 38 types of tea, as well as cocktails inspired by Chinese ingredients and a broad wine and Champagne list.
A first for the company, Yauatcha City will see the launch of a standalone Yauatcha Patisserie on the level below the main restaurant, where Chinese heritage and modern European cooking techniques have inspired the pastry team, led by Executive Pastry Chef Graham Hornigold, to create an array of macarons, petits gateaux and chocolates.
The restaurant will encompass the key design elements and characteristics from Yauatcha Soho including aquariums, starlit ceilings, visible kitchens and the blue and pink palette that has become synonymous with the restaurant. The light environment and deep booths will emulate the “chatter shop” atmosphere of a traditional dim sum eatery in Hong Kong, with deep booths providing a captivating drinking and dining space.
Diane von Furstenberg will be dressing staff for the ultimate finishing touch!
