By way of Beijing comes Mosto, a contemporary western restaurant and bar with a South American touch, now open in Jing’an, Shanghai. Hidden away from street view, Mosto also boasts a uniquely beautiful space to go with their eclectic menu.

Mosto is one of Beijing’s cornerstone restaurants. It first opened in Sanlitun’s Nali Patio in 2008 and has been a popular destination for food and drink ever since. It’s part of the same restaurant group that’s also responsible for La Social (recently closed) and Moka Bros, led by founders husband and wife Eva Biörck and Alex Molina, and chef-partner Daniel Urdaneta.
Hailed as an upbeat, classy yet casual venue that’s bolstered by a reverence for hospitality and service, Mosto intends to bring the same vibe to Shanghai.
Located on the fifth floor on Shaanxi Nan Lu, the space is smart and elegant, but still casual and welcoming. Understated warm interiors for the evenings with city and sunset views, and a bright and vibrant atmosphere for brunch.
There’s also a small terrace with al fresco seating and a cozy private room in the wine room with a view of the kitchen.
A Blend of Influences: Mediterranean, European & South American
Mosto’s food has been called Mediterranean, European, and South American, but in their own words, their menu is “a blend of favorites and influences that stem from our three different backgrounds.”
Without further ado, here’s what to order:
Also on the dinner menu are other dishes to share like charcuterie (¥288) and steaks, including a tenderloin (¥248) and a rib-eye M5 (¥428).
For drinks, they have a short and sweet menu of house cocktails, classics and some with a twist, starting from ¥70. Wines by the glass start from ¥65, bottles from ¥380. There’s also beer (¥40), juices (¥45), mocktails (¥60), and other soft drinks.
Mosto also serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. Food is a la carte, starting from ¥78, and there’s a two-hour free-flow for ¥198. Free-flow starts from 11:30am, last call is at 3pm.
The savory pancakes (¥88) with bacon, cheddar, sunny side-up egg, and maple syrup is a highlight, as is the Eggs Benedict (¥88).
In Summary: It’s going to be one of those hip, trendy places for sure. Great for date nights and free-flow brunches.
