By all accounts this is one of Shanghai’s best restaurants in terms of the upscale crowd that goes there to savor modern Chinese cuisine and the Chinese menu has an English translation.
It is a nice surprise to find pleasant design and decor amongst all the drab and brightly lit Shanghainese restaurants. It is located in what appears to be a building that manufactures toys.
Best dishes: Crispy Duck and Shredded Pork served with scallions and pancakes, Bao Zi vegetable dumplings.

M on Bund serves a good selection of various Western dishes most of them are good, and the cuisine is complimented by a fairly extensive wine list.

It is a trendy place, at the moment, and booking in advance would probably be a good idea. You are able to look through the tasteful decor out to sweeping views of the Bund. The food can be good to excellent and the service follows suit.

The location of Sasha, was at one time, the home to Chiang Kai Shek and his wife, Soong Mei Ling, during the civil war.

Today, the restored three-story house is the location of the fashionable Sasha’s restaurant, bar and patio. The lovely patio attracts diners when the weather cooperates, and is ideal for a Sunday brunch. Inside, the wooden interiors are very attractive. There is is no doubt it is a beautiful setting, and the fact that the food is good as well, makes for a pleasing lunch or dinner.

Prime is a newly launched restaurant just above Sasha, which has been a Shanghai institution for the past 10 years. Prime has been created to attract steak lovers and will offer six different cuts of beef
from Melbourne’s Chef Julian Robertshaw who has designed the menu from his long experience dealing with beef in Australia. He serves double cut veal chops and 450g T-bone steaks along with two of Australia’s favorites, mud crab and barramundi.
This restaurant is highly recommended if you enjoy steak and of course, let us not forget the famous mud crabs and delicious barramundi fish.

I think I have sampled enough Trader Vic’s around the world to understand the concept including: Beverly Hills (closed) although a new one will be opening in L.A. 2009, New York (closed), Chicago, San Francisco (closed), Oakland (closed), Scottsdale AZ, Vancouver (closed), London, Tokyo, Munich, Singapore (closed), Munich, and Bangkok (terrible).

The Shanghai Trader Vic’s Polynesian Restaurant is situated on the 2nd floor of an apartment complex near The Thai Gallery.

The menu is the typical Traders menu that you will now find in cities across the globe. You will find Asian and Western dishes mixed in with some South-Pacific recipes and of course their famous drinks that include the Navy Grog and Mai Tai among many others. Try the meat, lamb and beef steaks cooked in the wood-fired oven.

They have Happy Hour from 5:30-7:30, when drinks are buy one get one free and you can save money and sample some appetizers during these hours.

Allure French Restaurant has been recently opened in the Le Méridien Hotel on Nanjing Dong Lu. A comfortable, ultra-modern dining room seating about 45 is located on the 11th floor with a lovely view.

Allure is probably the best French restaurant in town and the Chef, Michael Wendling pays attention to minute details. A notable dish is the the Truffle Noire soup with black truffle emulsion and white beans. I might add that his cooking is good across the board.

The wine list contains only French selections but they have been carefully chosen and it is a well balanced list.

The French cuisine here is quite good. Choose the restaurant’s “set menu” at 498RMB; a starter, main course, cheese course and a dessert may be chosen from the menu. Ordering from the menu directly can become quite expensive.
