[Shanghai 上海] Highline

without comments

Highline

Add: 6F, Ascott, Hong Kong Plaza, 282 Middle Huaihai Road
Tel: 6333 0176
Hours: 11am~1am
Price: brunch 200+ RMB/person, dinner 350+ RMB/person
Visited: Apr 2017

Highline, located on the 6th floor of the Ascott in Hong Kong Plaza, is the hot place to be at this moment. To be honest, I wasn’t so impressed when I visited last year during its soft-opening stage – yes, the terrace is sexy and sleek, but the food and service were lacklustre at best. Highline has since then undergone a makeover of chefs and menus, and seems to be receiving especially good reviews for its brunch…time to go back for a second look.

開在香港廣場北座雅詩閣酒店 6 樓的 Highline,最近似乎非常熱門。由于是朋友投資的餐廳,去年還未正式開幕時我先去蹓跶過了幾次,但是(雖然這樣說可能對廚房的工作人員有些失禮)當時最讓我驚豔的是它漂亮的露台,而非食物本身。前一陣子聽說換了主廚改了菜單,趁上海天氣正好,我和朋友們挑了個陽光明媚的日子去試了試周末早午餐。

Though I’m quite in love with the terrace, we opted for the indoor sunroom as it was too windy on the day of our visit. First things first upon being seated – a glass of mimosa (68 RMB) to start the day.

雖然是衝著露台來的,不過當天風大而且朋友帶了小baby一起來,所以最後選了室內的陽光屋。落地窗完全打開,整個空間非常通透,舒服地坐下來後先來杯 Mimosa(68元)。

[Shanghai 上海] Brute Cake Cafe

without comments

Brut Cake Cafe

Add: 698 Yuyuan Road
Tel: 173 2100 8129
Hours: [Mon-Fri] 7am-9pm [Weekend] 10am-8pm
Price: 80~100 RMB/person
Visited: Apr 2017

My first time encountering Taiwanese designer Nicole Teng’s works was about 7 years ago in Plum Gallery, and right there and then I was charmed by her cute hand-drawn faces. Upon returning from Paris in 2015, I was pleased to discover that Nicole has opened a showroom called Brut Cake on Anfu Lu, though I was also slightly disappointed that there’s no actual cake in the shop…then, just earlier this year, Brut Cake Cafe opened, and yes they do sell cakes!

第一次見到台灣設計師 Nicole Teng 的手繪臉孔,應該是七年前的事情了吧。當時靜安別墅裏有個叫做 Plum Gallery 的空間,我到訪時正好展著 Nicole 的一些作品,各式各樣的手繪臉孔我一下就喜歡上了。幾年後從巴黎回來,發現她在安福路上開了家以自己品牌 Brut Cake 爲名的雜貨店,正想著爲什麽店名有 “cake” 而店裏卻沒有蛋糕的時候,真的有賣蛋糕的 Brut Cake Cafe 就在今年開幕了。

Located on Yuyuan Road, Brut Cake Cafe is designed in the same warm and soothing style as Brut Cake, with a sunny patio and wood-centric furniture. The most prominent feature, without a doubt, is the mug display on the wall showcasing 100 different hand-drawn faces, the ones that attracted me in the first place years ago.

位于愚園路的 Brut Cake Cafe 延續了 Brut Cake 返璞歸真的設計理念,有陽光滿分的露台和木質色系爲主的家具,一切都讓人感覺溫暖舒服…不過最引人注目的,還是牆上擺設著的一百只不同手繪臉孔的馬克杯 - 永澤洋蔥頭、花輪劉海、卷毛小胡子…你看上了,哪一個?

[Beijing 北京] The Georg by Georg Jensen

without comments

The Georg by Georg Jensen

Add: No. 45 Dong Bu Ya Qiao Hutong, Di An Men East Avenue, Beijing
Tel: 10 8408 5300
Hours: The Lounge 10:30-12am, The Restaurant 6-10:30pm (closed on Mon)
Website: thegeorg.com
Price: brunch 350 RMB/person, dinner 450 RMB+
Visited: Sep 2016

Located on the banks of the Jade river is The Georg, a 1000 sqm space of art × design × food by Danish silverware brand Georg Jensen. It includes The Living Room, set under a open space glass atrium, The Restaurant, a scandinavian take on international cuisine, and The Gallery, a showroom located on the 2nd floor. A gorgeous space inside and out.

位于北京東城區玉河橋畔某個傳統四合院裡的 The Georg,是丹麥百年銀飾品牌 Georg Jensen 打造的藝術 × 設計 × 美食空間,去過的朋友都說極美。在網上查了查,餐飲評價總體似乎不錯,價格也不離譜,決定前往探探。

Georg Jensen hired famed Danish design studio Space Copenhagen (who also designed NOMA) to re-envision this traditional Chinese courtyard house. All the furnitures have been custom-made, and modern Scandinavian fixtures are installed throughout the space, fusing harmoniously with the historical building.

果然,漂亮。Georg Jensen 請了丹麥知名的設計工作室 Space Copenhagen(連續幾年榮獲世界#1的 Noma 餐廳就是他們設計的喲)來規劃四合院裏 1000 平米的空間,左邊是起居室,中間是自然光充足的用餐區,右邊爲酒吧,二樓則是展廳。所有的家具都是定制品,燈具和裝飾也點綴的恰如其分,將北歐設計很自然的融合在中國傳統建築裏。

[Shanghai 上海] Egg

without comments

Egg

Add: 12 South Xiangyang Road, near Julu Road
Tel: N/A
Hours: 8am-6:30pm
Price: 100-150 RMB/person
Visited: Jan 2016

Bright, instagram-friendly cafe on South Xiangyang Road by cutiepie Camden Hauge of the Shanghai Supperclub. It serves all day breakfast, and as the name suggests, this place is quite egg-centric…even if the dish doesn’t already involve eggs, you have the option to “put an egg on it!” for 8RMB in addition. They also do a 10-seat chef’s table every Thursday evening which sounds like a fun and intimate experience.

襄陽北路上這家 Egg,我還在巴黎時就聽住在上海的外國朋友說了。老板是美國女孩 Camden Hauge,她的溫馨小店全天供應早餐,每道菜不是已經有了雞蛋,就是可以 “put an egg on it!”。Egg每周四還有僅限 10 人座的 chef’s table,每周的主廚不一樣,這個月會有 Madison 的 Austin Hu 和 Elefante 的 Carlos Sotomayor 來客串,聽起來會是兩個相當美味的聚餐。
