Some updates for next Monday -
On [1], Gus mentioned the Lao Han Zi restaurant:
"This oh-so-popular restaurant specializes in Hakka dishes such as
foil wrapped fish and salt shrimp on a stick. Outdoor seating and
English menu. Come early or expect to wait. Daily 11am-3.30pm,
5-10.30pm. Just north of Di'anmen Xidajie, on the southeast corner of
Qianhai. (6404 2259)"

It looks really fine to me :-) (some good reviews: [2] and [3])

Also, I have a friend teaching in Beijing, and one of his student
recommended two restaurants in the same building as the hotel (doesn't
look really adventurous, though :-) ): "The restaurant in the Beijing
Continental Grand Hotel where the conference will be hold. It is a
typical five-star hotel cafe. But do not expect it to serve very good
food. The service and atmosphere is the selling point. The average
price would be about 150-200 RMB per person.(tel.010-84982288).
Another is the Brazilian Churrascos, barbecue food is famous there.
The restaurant also in the same building of the hotel, but the first
floor. One of the waiter is Brazilian. The average price would be
about 180-220 RMB per person. ( tel.010-84982288-6178)"

It might be a good choice if most of us are still jet-lagged on Monday :)

Also, from the Twine "Great places to eat in Beijing" [4], David
mentioned a big list of restaurant [5] - I couldn't help noticing the
French "Brasserie Flo" in it :-) Other than that, the Beijing Da Dong
Roast Duck (speciality of roast duck), or the Alameda looks really
good. But it is extremely difficult to pick! Almost everything on this
list makes me really hungry :-)

I'll try to book in one of these places before the end of the week -
let me know what's your pick!
 * Lao Han Zi
 * Hotel's restaurant
 * Churrascos
 * Da Dong Roast Duck
 * Alameda
 * Others (from
for example)
