The Beijing restaurant of Chengfuyan, located in Nanchang Street 38, Beijing, is on the east side of Zhongnanhai and neighbors the Forbidden City in the west. Without any signs or written characters at the gate, there is only a very small plaque saying “Do not enter without invitation as this is a private home.” The site is a self-containing quadrangle yard and a 2-storey Chinese building stands in the middle. This restaurant is the first one of Family Cheng’s Banquet and is also an eye witness for Cheng Ruming’s development outside the Red Wall. The courtyard has 4 rooms altogether. Decorated with materials about Chairman Mao and items he once used in different time periods, this small courtyard looks extraordinary but intimate. Therefore, we would rather call it Family Cheng’s Small Yard.
Xibiaobei courtyard No.23, Chang’an Street, Beijing, is a quadrangle courtyard on the east side of News Tower, Chang’an Street, and is the sole quadrangle courtyard beside Chang’an Street within the Second Ring Road. With a vintage style presented in small bridges, circulating water, and winding corridors, this Chinese courtyard is surrounded by high-rise buildings, generating a sense of tranquility hiding in noises. The state banquet services offered by Chengfuyan make the site a most featured cultural landscape.
Courtyard No. 8, Yuquan Mountain, Beijing, is located in the east side of Yuquan Mountain, Haidian and neighbors the western gate of the Summer Palace, covering a land area of 5.40 acres. The project’s business range covers all kinds of banquets, small-size high-end meetings, recreational vehicle camping, high-end wedding banquets, outdoor cocktail parties, beer gardens, karaoke, tea house, chess and cards, and fishing, etc. The site is at the peak of a former royal water source for the Forbidden City with the soul of Ming and Qing royal gardens lingering on eternally. On this site is a Master-Missing Hall in which a large amount of precious cultural relics and pictures are stored, making it a real museum of the history of state banquets and a cultural hall of Chengfuyan.
