The table settings at Shanghai Terrace, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant, are a sleek twist on traditional Chinese settings. Atop the black placemats sits a large black plate that is accented with Chinese characters. In true Chinese fashion, you’ll find chopsticks along with a uniquely shaped holder to ensure that your utencils stay clean. As the meal progresses, your table settings will shift more and more toward the East — think bamboo steamers and porcelain spoons. Even with loads of dim sum in front of you, the table appears clean and chic with a Chinese spin.
