Hakkasan

Hakkasan is a fancy and fashionable Michelin-starred Chinese chain that comes to Shanghai via London. The soul of the menu is Cantonese and features traditional status ingredients like abalone or bird's nest as well as more Western notions of luxury like crispy roast duck with caviar. The beverage program is huge, with voluminous wine list and extensive cocktail program, too. But it's most striking feature is the space itself. It's beautifully appointed with dim lights and intricate wooden screens which create cozy little alcoves.
