This Asian fusion bar and bistro gets excellent marks for ambience, with a multi-story venue with large picture windows overlooking greenery and a park and an un-hurried atmosphere that is unusual for Shanghai restaurants. The food is fantastic too, with the flavors coming from the "globe-trotting" ways of Singaporean owner Betty Ng. The Laksa is rich and layered, the crab cakes are fresh, a wine-infused rosemary chicken is juicy but crisp on the outside, and the hand rolls and spring rolls are delicately-wrapped. There's also a Wagyu beef burger and a lamb chop — even though the menu is eclectic you'll have trouble deciding as dishes are consistently good, even the desserts. For drinks there's a standard wine and beer selection along with a handful of inventive cocktails. Waiters won't rush you out… feel free to linger and enjoy the serene calm, mood lighting and picture-window views as long as you'd like.
