Change, the new constant

I confess I was a bit taken aback to hear that Temple Restaurant Beijing, often lauded as the
best restaurant in the capital, was abandoning the more laid-back format of its elegant spinoff,
TRB-Bites. The company has reshaped the child more in the image of the father, to deliver the
same fine-dining experience, the same menu and the same superb wine list at both locations.

Bites is now TRB-Forbidden City, with same great view of the imperial palace's east gate.

"So far so good," ever-dapper owner and founder Ignace Lecleir says of the new space, which
reopened just this week and already has TRB's polished look and feel. "But as always,
anything new takes a bit of time to iron out the wrinkles."

This team is pretty handy with an iron, though. The snappy conversion took a mere four days.
On one wall, a line of impossibly large white lilies are curvaceous enough to be painted by
Goya. Another wall backs an imposing floor-to-ceiling wine showcase. Table settings are more
serene, servers more buttoned-down, and managers move through the dining room with the
comfortable assurance of swans.
