From the people behind Lin Asian Bar + Dim Sum in Clarksville, Qi is a modern “food-focused and farm-driven” Chinese restaurant downtown. Positioned with a slightly higher-end menu, Qi features ingredients like truffles and caviar. Just like Lin, a big part of Qi’s lunch and dinner menu is dim sum (on weekends there’s a full-on dim sum brunch). Everything we’ve had here has been exceptional - whether it’s the shrimp har kaw, the lobster dumplings, the pork and shrimp sui mai, or the Shanghai soup dumplings - they’re almost as beautiful to look at as they are tasty to eat.
