Tao Downton


One of the most elaborately decorated restaurants I have ever visited. From the dragon scale patterned screen and Chinese calligraphy murals that align its corridors, to the colossal Buddhist and Oriental statues that dominate the dining room, Tao has much for your eyes to feast on before your meal even reaches your plate. The food is incredible also, offering some of the best Chinese cuisine on the American East Coast, with the selection of seafood providing a particular delight. The black cod is a particular favourite of mine, and well worth a try.
