A cozy Neapolitan Italian restaurant which offers various types of southern pasta dishes, many veal selections including a quite good vitello tonnato. Pizzas are made from quality ingredients and then cooked in a stone oven, on occasion they were more soggy than they should be, and at other times we found the pizza crisp and good; weather and the type and blend of flour can enter into this equation as well as the pizzaiolo, as at other times we found it crisp and good.
Shanghai Restaurant Week – Winter Edition 2011 set to launch for March 7-13
Online bookings go live on February 22
Are you ready to try some of Shanghai’s finest dining experiences?
Shanghai Restaurant Week – Winter Edition 2011 Edition returns with more incredible restaurants, menus and experiences for the Shanghai dining community, bringing a much-needed ray of culinary sunshine during the cold winter months.
Returning restaurants include The Peninsula’s Sir Elly’s and Yi Long Court, M1NT, Moonsha, as well as the winners of previous Restaurant Week Awards: Palladio and T8. These favorites will be joined by Table No. 1, Isola and Danieli’s, with many more restaurants to be revealed when bookings open on February 22.
The concept, wildly popular around the world and now an established experience in Shanghai, now features two categories of Shanghai’s top restaurants serving a special 3-course dinner at 168 or 248 RMB, and a 3-course lunch for 78 or 118 RMB (check shanghairestaurantweek.com for menus and pricing). Chefs go out of their way to create unique and memorable menus exclusively for the Restaurant Week diners – a chance for them to impress both new and old customers.
Organized by DiningCity.com, a worldwide dining guide, the first two Shanghai Restaurant Weeks met with outstanding response, with many restaurants fully booked within minutes of the online real-time reservations system launch.
Siem Bierman, Managing Director of DiningCity.com for China, talked about Shanghai Restaurant Week’s second year, “The Restaurant Week concept is perfect for Shanghai – with so many restaurants and so many choices, it is a real chance for Shanghai diners to get out and try something new. We were amazed by how much effort the chefs and managers at the restaurants went out of their way to create very special menus just for Restaurant Week diners. We think it brings the Shanghai dining scene closer together.”
Shanghai Restaurant Week is proud to partner with San Pellegrino/Acqua Panna, and Moët Hennessy Estates & Wines, who will be offering renowned wines such as Cloudy Bay, Cape Mentelle, Chandon, Lapostolle and Terrazas at selected restaurants during Shanghai Restaurant Week.
All bookings can be made online only from February 22, via www.shanghairestaurantweek.com, a dedicated website with unique technology for online, real-time reservations. Restaurants that are interested in participation can contact the organizer at email@example.com.
