At Tang Court, every detail is considered, including the food presentation. The kitchen begins the work of building an appealing dish long before cooking; it starts with beautiful knife work. Every vegetable is cut to accentuate its shape, color and role in the dish. The result is that each plate at the Shanghai restaurant looks like a tiny piece of art. Take note of the dim sum dishes — each variety of steamed dumpling is folded into a unique shape, from squares with splashes of color on top to leaf-like forms with transparent skin through which you can see the brilliant vegetable filling. The Chinese restaurant’s Narumi bone china dishes add to the charm of the plating.
