A round-up of my favorite new restaurant openings in Shanghai from the past year, plus a shortlist of notable mentions. A good recap of 2021.
The Dining Room (Yue Xuan 悦轩) is a Chinese restaurant specializing in Jiangnan cuisine at Park Hyatt Shanghai. This is what modern Chinese food looks like.
Heritage by Madison is a modern American restaurant in Shanghai. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. They have a new brunch—¥188 for three dishes, and free-flow starting at ¥98.
Botong Sikdang is a Korean restaurant in Shanghai that specializes in grilled pork and banchan. It’s wildly popular and worth the wait. Store #2 in Jing’an.
J.Boroski is a secluded cocktail bar that does high-caliber bespoke drinks in Jing’an. The entrance-way is hidden and there is no menu.
High Yaki is a Japanese restaurant in Shanghai that does yakitori, yakiniku, and dry-aged beef. It is fantastic and should be high on your to-eat list.
French fine dining at Maison Lameloise Shanghai, a Michelin one-star restaurant in the Shanghai Tower. Here’s what you can expect from lunch.
