The Hakkasan Group’s upscale tea house has brought its Michelin-starred pedigree to The Galleria’s jewel box building. Needless to say, Yauatcha (read as: Yow-atch-ah) doesn’t look like dim sum restaurants in Chinatown; the stylish, modern room fits in with The Galleria’s ultra-chic environment. Although it offers very good versions of all the traditional dumplings, the menu doesn't look much like a traditional dim sum restaurant either, in the sense that it includes elaborate cocktails, an extensive wine list, and some of the best French-style desserts in the city. As ridiculous as it sounds to pay over $100 for Peking duck, Yauatcha's over-the-top version in which the skin is served with pancakes and the meat comes stir-fried constitutes the menu's most worthwhile splurge.
