Empress By Boon

Written by

Step into the dining room at this upscale Cantonese restaurant, and you’ll meet one of the most stunning views in the city. The Chinatown restaurant has massive windows throughout the dining room that look out over Coit Tower. But the view is only one reason reservations at this hot spot are tough to snag. The other is the menus (including the $78 prix-fixe dinner), and excellent dishes like tender grilled black cod or crispy sea prawn rolls with a thin, lacy wrapper. The trick to eating at Empress By Boon without a reservation, though, is to grab a seat at the bar or the cocktail lounge under the pergola with the skylight - they have an a la carte menu, which also includes standout hits from the prix-fixe menu.
