To renovate a 20,000-square-foot space in the Embarcadero Center to build an upscale Asian chain, cost $14 million. Recently acquired by LVMH, the luxury group that owns Louis Vuitton, Dom Perignon, Dior and other well known brands, Crystal Jade Jiang Nan opened up as one of the biggest restaurants in the city of San Francisco. Designed by prestigious Ken Fulk, this huge space turned into Asian castle with a modern twist and amazing views of the Bay.
Crystal Jade’s Menu reads like ahigh end Chinese restaurant with lots of options. The food is authentic with great attention to ingredients, freshness, taste and presentation. Prices are very high, but best in town Pecking duck and Apple Wood Roasted Suckling Pig.
Every bite of shrimp and spinach, sticky rice lotus wrapped , scallop and shrimp and for dessert rice ball with black sesame rolled in peanuts dimsum was exquisite.
Crystal Jade serves truly authentic Chinese cuisine of pretty high standards. Definitely one of the best Chinese restaurant in the heart of San Francisco.
