Jade on 36
Chef de cuisine Franckelie Laloum, formerly of Michelin three-starred Maison Pic and Maison Troisgros, brings his top-shelf experience to this French restaurant on the 36th floor of the Pudong Shangri-La hotel. Views of the Bund are plentiful in this elegant space; red accents and carpeting contrast against neutral-toned floors. The tasting menu includes a roasted pigeon breast with turnip confit and dates, and pan seared goose foie gras with oysters. A popular dessert item, le chocolat consists of a chocolate soufflé tart with vanilla ice cream. Dress is smart casual.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
