Decade-old London-based Hakkasan is the Michelin-starred toast of that city's Chinese scene (it's also in Miami, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Mumbai) and a favorite with celebs, not to mention Frank Bruni. Now the upmarket Cantonese concept hits New York, bowing in Hell's Kitchen today, with a sprawling, luxurious interior and a menu of pricey feast-worthy fare. Baller ingredients abound, as in the noodles with scallops, lobster, and black truffles, or the roasted silver cod with Champagne and Chinese honey. Scope out photos and the rest of the lineup straight ahead.
Hakkasan, 311 West 43rd St., nr. Eighth Ave.; 212-776-1818
