About MUST Wine & Grill
Established in 2012, MUST Wine & Grill (or MUST Grill for short) is a friendly neighborhood restaurant that’s well known for burgers and steaks, its convivial atmosphere, and value for money. It was called Wine Must in the beginning, named after the freshly crushed juice that contains the skin, seeds, and stem of the fruit.
Tucked away inside a lane on Wuding Lu, the restaurant is spacious yet homey, and boasts a massive terrace and a bright sun room. The vibe is casual, laidback, and unpretentious with genial service. It’s also great for large groups.
And when the weather’s nice, the expansive terrace draws a good crowd.
Steaks, French Classics, Burgers
You might have first heard about MUST by way of their burgers, but there’s so much more to this humble restaurant than just that.
At its core, MUST is a grill restaurant, serving up steaks and fries along with French staples like baked camembert, beef tartare, and duck confit. The burgers at MUST Grill have been and still are solid, made with house-ground beef patties stacked on house-made milk buns. And they live up to their tagline: “Comfort food at comfort prices.”
So here it is, revisiting some of their signature dishes, and some delicious new entries like the mussel pasta, braised lamb shank, and truffle pasta.
As for the wine list, it’s a curated selection by co-founder and tenacious host Cyril Pilard, who also runs a wine company.
Wines by the glass start from ¥40, bottles from ¥250, and there are a handful of rosés, including my recent favorite, Château Réal Martin Côtes de Provence (¥350/bottle). There are some great bottles within the ¥250-¥400 range, so don’t be shy to ask for a recommendation.
