Say goodbye to white gloves and layers of straight-faced waiters. Brasserie 1893 is all about candid chef-and-guest interaction, gastronomical indulgence and visual bliss.
Combining the French term 'brasserie' for informal dining of high quality and the year 1893, which marks the opening year of the first Waldorf Astoria in New York, Brasserie 1893 stands out as a perfect reflection of the trendsetting restaurant ran by the legendary Oscar Tschirky, maitre d'hotel. Working for many years at Waldorf Astoria New York, this gourmet master is credited with inventing the Waldorf Salad (apple, celeriac, grapes and nuts elegantly tossed into a salad) and eggs benedict, all signature dishes of Brasserie 1893 in Beijing.
The Show Kitchen
The main dining room of Brasserie 1893 features 90 seats including a Chef's Table for eight. The central focus of the restaurant is the show kitchen, which has two Molteni stoves, the dream of every top restaurant. Guests can sip exquisite wines while enjoying chefs in actions - grilling steaks and preparing oysters.
At Brasserie 1893, we serve a buffet as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner. Exquisite dishes are prepared using fresh produce handpicked by Executive Chef Reiner Lupfer. These premium imported ingredients come only from specific places in the Mediterranean and provide the best possible options for dishes at Michelin start heights, such as botargo and fresh cheese from Italy and France.
Guests can indulge in extravagant feasts at Waldorf Astoria Beijing. A special mid-week roast is organized every Wednesday when our chef's team prepares the perfect prime rib roast or the finest whole halibut in salt crust, carved in front of all the guests.
On Fridays, a Seafood Tower is the eye catcher. Admire an impressive display of the freshest and most exclusive fruits of the ocean, including Alaskan king crab, lobster, fine scallops, oysters of different types and sizes and an array of shrimps and prawns. Whoever gets a glass can drink from the magnum bottles of wine and plunge into the seething mixture of fine food and first-class wine.
