Sureno (Beijing) - ♕♕♕♕

  Sureno located in a basement within Beijing is being operated by the same dining group which runs Upper House in HK.  I came past here 1 day upon hearing that it's famous for its wood-fired oven pizzas, although in the end I forgo the chance to try this out as it would be a bit excessive to eat a whole pizza by yourself, especially after having eaten a few Chinese ducks and when quota is limited and reserved for my next Beijing adventure...!   I was rather impressed by the Sanlitun Village North architectural scheme and planning nevertheless,  which consists of a series of designer-squares aimed specifically at showcasing and representing the amount of progress Beijing City has since undertaken to prove itself worthy of the Olympics city status. 

Pretty amazing how they came up with such a communal space setting,
within a piece of land in the middle of China..

Sureno -
Serving Italian and Modern European dishes

Antinori Santa Cristina IGT (Tuscany) -
A 2008 Chianti Classico with IGT status, this was quite hot and fruit driven, a little sweet compared to a typical IGT Sangiovese based wine from Tuscany.  Easily approachable ~  7/10

Court Yard at the back -
Located at the basement, this is the ideal venue that is perfect for a weekend drinkers gathering.  The majority of the clientele here is still predominantly White or Japanese orientated, but come back in a few years and may be that will all change again!  Who can tell...
