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. Our Chef Fei Zhao was raised in the Guandong province in China and has been a part of the EAT Restaurant family for many years. He focuses on well balanced, yet creative dishes, as is traditional in Cantonese cuisine. 

Fat Dragon also offers diners gluten free and vegetarian options. 

Gluten-free Tamari sauce is available as a substitute for soy sauce by request. Please let your server know if you have any dietary restrictions prior to ordering.
