Ensue implies constant motion, continuation, striving for results.  Carrying the innovation and “rise above” spirit, the restaurant aims to bring an exquisite and exclusive dining experience to patrons. Ensue was designed by Chris Shao (Chris Shao Studios, New York), blending elements of Chinese luxury with the natural beauty of Napa Valley.

Here, patrons will enjoy an abundantly creative, etherial, and inspired culinary masterpiece by Chef Kostow. Alcove, the bar at Ensue, is another significant feature. Like the restaurant, it seamlessly blends comfort with quality featuring a carefully curated inventory with expertly crafted cocktails developed by Beau du Bois (The Restaurant at Meadowood).

“I’m very excited and look forward to meeting you all at Shenzhen! I believe the unique dining experience we provide will take patrons to an exciting and memorable culinary journey, welcome to visit us.” Says Christopher Kostow.
