Tucked away in the back alleys of Sanlitun, Alameda was one of the first (and is still one of the leaders) in what is now a bustling neighborhood of trendy bistros and cafés. The minimalist décor, capped with an airy glass atrium, is urban chic, and the menu (a fusion of Brazilian, European, and Asian influences) equally so. Lunch brings in the hardcore business power scene for the sophisticated service and set menu, while evenings draw a romantic date crowd for the ambiance.

WHY WE LIKE IT

WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Too many tables, way too close together–not great for intimate conversation.
GOOD TO KNOW
