My favorite dishes were the fillet of sole with a crawfish mousse, and, of course, the roasted pressed duck.  The Chinese do duck well (e.g. Sun Wah Bbq), but this was so flavorful.

It is a great concept and I also appreciate the business model:  sell (out) tickets in advance, and keep the same menu for three months so you don’t waste any food.
