I"m afraid my visit to JE Mansion was a farcical affair. The building is stunning. But everything else singularly lived up to it. The staff struggled to overcome their surprise that I was dining alone, were absolutely incapable of advising me on my meal, and made very little effort to ensure it was enjoyable. Throughout my meal, there were large arguments between staff in a nearby room, and a constant stream of staff wheeling tables and chairs past me. (Very happy to supply the photos - they are quite amusing.) All in all, way off the mark - probably due to genuine incompetence rather than malice. Some of the food was good - but this was, overall, an exceptionally poor fine dining experience. (On a happier note, thank you for your review of Bei - by far the highlight of my visit to Beijing.)
