Traditional Chinese with a Modern Twist

Fat Dragon Chinese Kitchen and Bar is a modern, sustainable interpretation of classic Cantonese and multi-regional Chinese cuisine. What this means is that everything from ingredients to materials and practices follows a commitment to the health of diners as well as the planet.

In addition to using local produce whenever possible, The Fat Dragons’ dishes feature naturally raised meats with no hormones and no antibiotics; sustainability-caught or naturally-raised seafood, and natural soybean oil.
