"The most recent feather in the Huntington’s chapeau is the amazing Liu Fang Yuan (Garden of Flowing Fragrance), which opened in 2008. Most of the building elements were constructed in Suzhou, China, home of famed gardens from the 16th and 17th centuries, on which this convergence of art, architecture and nature was modeled.
Bottlenecks may occur at any of the seven pavilions, but they’re worth any minor wait. The lovely Terrace of the Jade Mirror, a reference to the moon, features incredible hand-carved wood panels, whose maintenance in the blistering Southern California sun makes us shudder.
The darling Tea Room is not nearly as stuffy as it could be.
Ham-fisted sandwiches and good salads without the clatter of silverware are served around the corner at the Café, which is less expensive by half than the Tea Room."
