Still one of Shanghai's most popular restaurants to celebrate anniversaries and birthdays, Mr. and Mrs. Bund continues to serve up fine-but-casual French fare alongside stunning Huangpu river views. Even as Shanghai's restaurant scene has exploded with competition, bringing in chefs from every corner of the world, Mr. and Mrs. Bund still regularly tops best restaurant lists. Try customer favorites such as the short rib and the tart dessert made from an entire lemon, and don't forget Chef Paul Pairet's longtime signature meunière with truffle bread, which was one of his favorite side dishes for years at home before it occurred to him to put it on his restaurant menu. Finer touches include a sourcing list that tells you where your food came from. Be sure to book in advance and ask for a Bund-view window table.
