    Authentic european dining experience, this is provincial European cuisine, refined, but not tricked up. Located on the 87th floor the warmth comes from walnut wooden floors, fabulous horsehair benches, a sting ray leather wall and original art. Executive chef Gerhard Passrugger is an old friend that we have worked and dined with many times. He’s obsessed about food and even boasts his own smoker. Gerhard has been in Shanghai for a long time and taken the time and energy to source the very best ingredients including vegetables that come from small local organic farms.
    Accoutrements, as one would expect are lavish with silverware for side dishes and plates from Metard de noblat china…get the picture!
    Wine is stored in temperature controlled cellaring and service is excellent…make sure you drag Gerhard out to say hello and it probably wouldn’t hurt to mention his name when making a booking. AO
