Hot Pot at Holy Cow 😋 This restaurant was voted as Best Chinese Restaurant in the city by readers of Time Out Shanghai. Loved the authentic spicy soup base and their beef is always fresh, never frozen

Chef Michael White was at Plaza 66's opening to unveil Marea Shanghai, an outlet of his Michelin Starred New York restaurant. I was lucky enough to be one of the first to try his dishes at a sneak preview dinner. Loved these Seared Diver Scallops, Coppa Crisp and Black Truffle Sugo

Honoured to have been invited to the opening of Plaza 66's new wing in Shanghai. Great experience seeing Alicia Keys perform for us!

Mixed Shanghainese Buns at Da Hu Chun (11 Sichuan S Rd). This place is very popular so expect long queues during lunch time. It's worth the wait though! We got the mixed platter with Traditional Pork, Clam, and Foie Gras fillings. Love the way they are slightly charred on the underneath to give them a satisfying crunch

Great dinner at Jason Atherton's Table No. 1 last night. Loved the laid back vibe of this place and nice design. One of my favourite dishes was this perfectly cooked Roasted Squab with peas and carrots 👍🏻

GUEST QUESTION
How often do you come to Shanghai, Jason?
One per year!
For hipster shops and boutiques galore head to Tianzifang (in French Concession) - Kind of a cross between Soho/East Village/Williamsburg, alleys after alleys of hipster shops, sidewalk cafes. Also draws a very international crowd. Great for people watching.

We especially loved the local snacks!

One of our favorite tourist & educational stops was the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center -

If you like little models/replicas of entire cities, this is a must.

They have an entire floor replica of Shanghai and surrounding areas and there is a light show. It is awesome.

For a modern upscale Shanghai Chinese dinner we visited the Whampoa Club, also on the Bund. It was a very quiet room -- almost like we were eating alone -- but the food was exceptional.

We had exceptional fish and vegetables and left very happy!

For a memorable and fantastic French dinner, head to Mr. And Mrs. Bund on the Bund. Exceeded expectations - great food and bustling high energy huge dining room - and of course the amazing views. Celebrity French chef Paul Pairet called this the "modern eatery"

Pictured here is the lemon 🍋 lemon tart. Delish!

Favorite bistro restaurant in Shanghai: Commune Social.

My friend Lyndon Neri designed it and it's an awesome space. Seating at the counter, watch the chef's, small plates, Jasom Atherton at his best.
