The selection here may seem endless, but these five meals at The Portman Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai are not to be missed:
1. Summer Pavilion, best known for its Cantonese and Shanghainese cuisine, makes an exception with one of Northern China’s most famous imports — Peking duck. (And keeping with tradition, a nice pot of premium tea, too.)
2. Chef Hoshina Masanobu’s kaiseki (set menus) are a popular choice at Hanagatami. They offer a sampling of all the chef’s specialties. Of course, you must pair them with sake.
3. The Sunday brunch at Tables features its famous seafood buffet accompanied by free-flowing Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial champagne.
4. Palladio’s risotto dishes, best paired with a fine wine, are a stellar top pick. The creamy green pea risotto came with beet slices and perfectly cooked scallops, and our waiter recommended a nice pinot grigio to go with it.
5. The Ritz Bar’s sliders and specialty martinis are nighttime favorites. In the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel's Lobby Lounge, the cheesecake is a hot seller, and the afternoon tea is one upscale experience you shouldn’t miss.
