Restaurant Week Plus is back – Here are some of our recommendations

Beijing foodies rejoice, Restaurant Week Plus is back! For those who don’t know, Restaurant Week is a biannual food festival organized by Dining City where some of the best restaurants in the capital offer menus with at least three courses.

This Restaurant Week Plus is a special one-time event following the Covid epidemic this spring. It started on July 14 and will run until August 21. Yes, that’s more of a restaurant month than just a week, giving you even more time to grab some of those bargains!

There are four fixed price categories to choose from:

  • Elite: Price determined by restaurants
  • Category A: 148 RMB for lunch and 298 RMB for dinner
  • Category B : 118 RMB for lunch and 198 RMB for dinner
  • Category C: 78 RMB for lunch and 118 RMB for dinner

Along with these menu offers, many restaurants are also offering a 10% discount on à la carte dishes. To book, you need to log in and book via the official website (www.restaurantweek.cn), the Dining City app or the Dining City WeChat mini program (scan the QR code below).

There are 99 restaurants with deals in Beijing and you can filter them by cuisine, date, location, price, and more. To make it easier for you, we’ve picked out a few recommendations that you should definitely try.

CHAO Lounge

One of the Grade A restaurants, CHAO Living Room’s Mediterranean-themed menu emphasizes fresh and healthy foods. This chic restaurant and bar offers live piano music during the week or a live jazz band on the weekends. They are only open for dinner and in addition to the fixed menu offered, you can also pay an extra 120 RMB to add a “three wine tasting experience” to accompany the meal.

The Dew

I was a big fan of La Rosee’s set menu offerings last restaurant week, and they’re back this time around. They have a set B-grade menu that includes dishes like a whole roasted spring chicken, rack of lamb, or the intriguing cup of Oreo cheese mousse.
