On the Lan
A New Asian Supper Club in SoBe

So you’re not going to make it to Hong Kong this year. (It’s okay, Mauritius is so much nicer this time of year.)

But you’re still looking for a gracious spot to host a preholiday feast of blue crab spring rolls and spicy chili prawns.

And if it comes with ocean views, all the better...

Welcome to Lantao Kitchen + Cocktails, a new South Beach supper club brimming with Asian street food and lychee martinis, now open at the Surfcomber Hotel.

Think of Lantao (named after an island in Hong Kong) as an upscale jaunt through the food stalls of Southeast Asia—except without the live scorpions on skewers. Things like Korean-style BBQ pork ribs chased with papaya and pork belly salad. But it’s plenty handsome, too—there’s a slate-gray bar where you’ll get started with a soju-spiked cocktail like the Nocturnal Mule made with lychee and pomegranate.

And if the weather’s bad (or you just want to keep things covert), settle into a corner banquette where you and a few spring-roll lovers will get comfortable with bottles of sake and street noodles in spicy coconut broth.

Otherwise, you’ll want to step outside for a seat on the patio, where you can catch salty breezes between bites of duck crepes made with Asian duck confit and desserts like forbidden black rice pudding.

Well, not forbidden for you.
