Featuring a monthly round up of the newest restaurants and bars in Shanghai, as seen in our reviews

 

New Restaurants in Shanghai

Colca

 

Colca

Address: 199 Hengshan Lu (near Yongjia Lu) 衡山路199号 (近永嘉路)
Tel: 5401-5366

Another winning combination from F&B veteran Eduardo Vargas (Azul). Colca is the anchor tenant in Yong Ping Li, a new compound housing all-new restaurants including STYX, Crafted, Bodeguita del Medio and branches of Qimin Hotpot and Madeleine Bakery. It sports a beautiful outdoor seating area, too. The large menu may be difficult to navigate, but head straight for the Josper items. Stars include the halibut and Argentinian tenderloin. Order the lobster seafood rice and scallop chia tiradito, as well as the vanilla caramel budino for dessert. Click here to read our review.

 

 

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Purple Garlic

 

The Purple Garlic

Address: 1/F, 108 Wanping Nan Lu (near Zhaojiabang Lu) 宛平南路108号1楼 (近肇加浜路)
Tel: 5427-0335

This half-restaurant half-grocery store brings some of the best Taiwanese food we've had in a long time. The Purple Garlic is an authentic Taiwanese restaurant that uses ingredients from their local suppliers to provide farm-to-table classic renditions of Taiwanese home and street food favorites. What ever you do, be sure to order the chicken with ginger and wine casserole. Click here to read our review.

 

 

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Akme

 

Akme

Address: 55 Wulumuqi Nan Lu (near Hengshan Lu) 乌鲁木齐南路55号 (近衡山路)
Tel: 6428-9799

Akmé is the latest brainchild of chef Akrame Benallal, whose eponymous restaurants in Paris and Hong Kong both enjoy Michelin accolades. The creative French fine dining restaurant offers some highlights—grilled blue lobster, pigeon and the cocotte of vegetables—but falters with a few dishes as being one-dimensional and overthought. Though, the technique is noticably impressive, as is the presentation. Click here to read our review.

 

 

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Lychee

 

Lychee

Address: No. 2, 49 Fuxing Xi Lu (near Wulumuqi Zhong Lu) 复兴西路49弄2号 (近乌鲁木齐中路)
Tel: 3461-1377

Lychee is a contemporary Asian restaurant and bar by Cotton Ding of Cotton's with cocktails courtesy of Carson Xie, The Nest. Most of the food is commendable and it's competitively priced, too. Try the roast duck with lychee salad, skewers and teriyaki beef tongue. Great spot for date nights. Click here to read our review.

 

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Sunny's Burgerland

 

Sunny's Burgerland

Address: 286 Fengxian Lu (near Nanhui Lu) 奉贤路286号 (近南汇路)
Tel: 136-3634-7970

Sunny's Burgerland is a compact new burger joint offering high-quality Australian Angus beef patties on brightly colored buns. The buns are definitely memorable, though, don't add much to the overall flavor. Still, the burgers here are inexpensive and they have killer potato wedges. Our favorite? The Surf 'n' Turf Burger. Click here to read our review.

 

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Mendo

 

Mendo Noodle Bar

Address: No. 205, 2/F, No.5, The House, Xintiandi, 123 Xingye Lu (near Huangpi Nan Lu)兴业路123弄5号新天地新里205铺2楼 (近黄陂南路)
Tel: 6333-3603

If your office is in the Xintiandi area, Mendo is definitely one you should check out. It's operated by the same people behind Paris Bleu and Paris Rouge. Why do we recommend it? Obviously, for the price. But the food is quite tasty, too. Get the Chinese Beef Noodles, Mendo's take on Lanzhou Lamian, and the Pho Bun noodles. Click here to read our review.

 

 

New Restaurant and Bars in Shanghai:  Yen at W Shanghai

 

Yen at W Shanghai

Address: 5/F, W Shanghai, 66 Lvshun Lu (near Dongchangzhi Lu) 上海外滩W酒店旅顺路66号5楼 (近东长治路)
Tel: 2286-9965

YEN is the Cantonese restaurant at the W Shanghai hotel. The prestigious venue takes up two floors, offering a luxurious and intimate setting for only 37 seats and seven private dining rooms. Singaporean Chinese Executive Chef Kong Khai Meng helms the kitchens, offering modern Cantonese cuisine with dishes like the marinated cod, flavored with leatherwood honey-soy and served with scrambled egg white. It's undoubtedly a place that will impress guests.

 

 

New Restaurant and Bars in Shanghai:  Maurya

 

Maurya > iapm

Address: Lot 603, 6/F, 999 Huaihai Zhong Lu (near Shaanxi Nan Lu) 淮海中路999号上海环贸广场六层603室 (近陕西南路)
Tel: 5757-7077

Upmarket Sichuan restaurant Maurya finally opens a second location, snapping up a spot in the iapm mall. The restaurant is dressed in a Millennial Pink and gold swatch and sports the same expansive layout as its Xintiandi branch. It's Sichuan cuisine with a modern spin—expect the same range of fiery classics and prompt service. Be sure to try the Chongqing-style Mandarin fish with crispy deep-fried peas, braised frog with ginger and chili sauce, and Snow Dragon beef and fresh abalone.

 

 

New Restaurant and Bars in Shanghai: Green & Safe Le Petit

 

Green & Safe Le Petit

Address: B/F, The Hub, 17 Suhong Lu (near Shenhong Lu) 苏虹路17号虹桥新天地B1楼 (近申虹路)

A restaurant, bakery, and organic market all rolled into one with all ingredients being sourced from an organic farm out in Kunshan. This particular location of Green & Safe is located on the far West end of town (Hongqiao Airport) and is catered towards children, with picnic themed tables, an innovative drawing zone, and a kids menu. Serves a wide range of Western food from steaks to pizzas, fresh baked goods, burgers, pancakes, and more.

 

 

New Bars in Shanghai

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Q's Palace

 

Q's Palace

Address: 253 Huangpi Bei Lu (near Weihai Lu) 黄陂北路253号 (近威海路)
Tel: 6312-9057

Q's Palace is a couture shop one block from People’s Square that has a café that’s open late and serves cocktails. Chances aren’t high that you’d find yourself on Huangpi Lu for happy hour, but if you did step into this place for a drink, the results might surprise you. Creative cocktails with slow wait times, but attentive staff. Click here to read our review.

 

New Restaurant & Bars in Shanghai: Empire on the bund

 

Empire

Address: 1 Yan'an Dong Lu (near Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu) 1 延安东路 (近中山东一路)

This is a new project on the Bund from Reggie Ba-Pe III, the man behind Arcade and Arkham. It's a posh spot, and while there is a food menu, the spirits are the bigger draw. Expect well designed cocktails that taste as good as they look. Click here to read our review.

 

 

New Restaurant and Bars in Shanghai: St Regis Bar

 

St. Regis Bar

Address: 1008 Beijing Xi Lu (near Jiangning Lu) 北京西路1008号 (近江宁路)
Tel: 6257-9999

Hotel bars are certainly stepping up their game, evident here, at the St. Regis Bar. Cocktails are courtesy of barman Rogerlino Wu, who previously operated La Vida on the now boarded up Shaanxi Nan Lu. The bar has a menu of more than 50 cocktails and boasts a wide range of whiskys. Drinks on offer include the signature St. Regis Bloody Mary, invented at the St. Regis New York, as well as the Shanghai-inspired Mary Jing, featuring local spices and dried osmanthus flowers. The cocktails are stylish in design, and like any good craft cocktail bar, the drinks taste as good as they look.
