Every winter Chinese New Year conjures imagery of golden dragons, wishing ribbons, festive lanterns and over-the-top feasts. Take your Lunar New Year party to Hakkasan Beverly Hills where Michelin-starred Chef Ho Chee Boon has conjured up a special eight-course menu, available through March 1.

The festive feast includes dishes like an assortment of dim sum; spicy lamb lupin wrap; golden fried sea prawns with red chili and curry leaf; abalone and dry scallop fried rice; stir-fry black pepper rib eye beef; grilled Chilean sea bass in honey; and for dessert, a kumquat wishing tree made up of chocolate, caramelized macadamia nuts and cocoa rocks. Complete your experience with the Kumquatcha, a cocktail made with Leblon Cachaça, Campari, kumquats, lime, simple syrup.
