La Chine, the replacement for Oscar's Brasserie in the Waldorf Astoria, is a white tablecloth restaurant serving gussied-up specialties from all over China. The regions of origin are listed below each dish on the tall, long menu. Starters include sous vide beef tongue, foie gras with sour cherries, and "kumquat pork belly ribs." The entree section has a $38 wok-seared lamb loin, $39 lobster with black beans, and sous vide black cod for $32. La Chine also offers seven raw-bar dishes, including a shellfish spread for $49. The chef here is Kong Khai Meng, and the hotel's culinary director David Garcelon is also overseeing the operation.
