The Peninsula Shanghai has three restaurants that easily accommodate families: Western fine-dining spot Sir Elly’s, which serves Mediterranean-influenced cuisine; Cantonese restaurant Yi Long Court; and The Lobby, where breakfast, afternoon tea, lunch and dinner are available. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel has a dedicated children’s coloring menu that comes with crayons and offers youngsters dishes like steamed fish fillet, chicken fingers, pasta and fried rice. Regardless of where you’re eating, kids can order off of this menu, so you don’t need to worry about catering to picky palates. While some children might enjoy the main menu at Sir Elly’s, many will find it too rich. Families who wish to forgo children’s menus will have better luck at Yi Long Court, where kids can enjoy simple dumplings, rice and sautéed vegetables. The Lobby has adult-sized snacks that kids will also enjoy, including chicken wings and mini quiche.
