Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai's new outdoor terrace
The freshest coastal cuisine in the most original new dining venue: After a hectic day in meeting rooms and at desks, take a breather by unwinding on the Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai's new outdoor terrace. The terrace offers one of the very few opportunities for al fresco dining in Lujiazui. Surrounded by the garden greenery, on plush wooden decking, it feels intimate and natural.
The food has the same feeling of freshness, as while the hotel sits beside the river, a coastal mix of the best of both land and sea will tempt any meat lover.
In the mood to celebrate Shanghai, which literally means 'on the sea'? Then order up the Seafood Tower of Oysters, Poached Shrimp, Boston lobster, Mussels and Snow crab leg. Terrace Snacks draw from the best of world cuisine which matches with a cold drink or tall glass of beer and savory flavors: Duck Quesadilla with Cilantro-Lime Mayo and Plum Sauce, or Chicken Tikka Skewers with House-made Pitta Bread and Cucumber with Mint-Yoghurt Sauce.
At dusk, the sparkling lights of Lujiazui and the river breezes set an enchanting mood, as the elites of the busy financial district clock off work and settle down to enjoy the evening.
Succeeding in Shanghai means being a go-getter – a carnivore who can bring home the meat. Sate your meaty cravings with hearty carvings; a Sirloin Steak with Garden Greens and a Maple-Syrup-Chili Vinaigrette, or the ultra-moreish Urban Terrace Angus Burger, with brioche bun, bacon, aged cheddar cheese, tomato chutney, spicy mayo and fries. With draft beer on tap and the al fresco setting perfectly matching the cocktail list, you won't want to leave this little respite in the greenest part of the modern city.
