Tian Di Yi Jia: Dine with a view
3/F, Bund 6, 1 Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu, +86 21 5757 5777
If there was a list of places to awe guests with views of the Bund, Tian Di Yi Jia would be at the top.
Located on the third floor of the venerable Bund 18, Tian Di Yi Jia delivers modern Shanghainese (read: Shanghainese-Western fusion) cuisine with Bund views that might just surpass the dishes. The VIP room (minimum RMB 4,000) sets guests up with a coveted view of the Pearl Town and Pudong skyline.
Local food critic Shen Hongfei says this is the best place in town for Capital Soup, and you shouldn't miss Tian Di Yi Jia's sake foie gras and Shanghai-style ice cream. After work let the party continue upstairs in Bund 18 at Bar Rouge and L18.
