Empress M invites you to a unique dining experience of authentic Chinese food, drinks, with rich culture and stories!
Few aspects of life are as powerful as the simple act of eating and drinking together. Food is nourishment, necessary for our very survival. Yet food is also so much more. Food is family. Food is love. Food is tradition. Food is history, culture, storytelling, discussion, understanding. Food is a universal connection.
Food can convey the passions and vitality of an entire people. In China, the flavors and textures of the eight greatest regional culinary traditions date back hundreds, even thousands, of years. These classic dishes have been carefully refined across changing seasons, political leaderships and societies. With each reimagining, their sensory experience deepens.
EmpressM brings these unforgettable regional cuisines together at one table for an exhilarating and immersive experience. Youʼll discover classic dishes joyfully brought to life with innovative touches. Specialized beverage menus, curated with care and restraint, and vibrant design will energize and inspire you. At EmpressM, youʼll travel across geography, culture and history with your senses invigorated and your curiousity awakened.
Join us to encounter tradition interwoven with modernity, to pay homage to legacies that are rooted in the breaking of new ground. From Empress Wu ZeTian, Chinaʼs first and only female political leader, to Margaret Wong, a Californian entrepreneur and restauranteur with a deep love of cultural exchange, youʼll be uplifted by EmpressMʼs celebration of womenʼs admirable work ethic and perseverance.
Like the world-renowned Napa Valley, where the hands of immigrant workers from China nurtured some of the regionʼs first grapevines more than a hundred years ago, the unique story of EmpressM continues to unfold. Come savor the experience with us!
