Chinois on Main is one of the country’s premier dining destinations. In 1983, when the doors opened, Wolfgang Puck created the first and still best example of America’s fusion cuisine with his bold menu of Asian dishes created with California’s fresh, accessible products combined with French culinary techniques. With a stunning and timeless design by Barbara Lazaroff, Chinois’ colorful interior and open kitchen has made this restaurant a favorite for over two decades. Featuring Chinois classics and seasonal specialties, the inspiring menu by Chef Rene Mata is served family style in a festive atmosphere that invites the sharing and tasting of a variety of exciting flavors. Chinois also features a full-service bar, an internationally diverse wine list and a new private dining room for special events.
