The table settings at 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Shanghai are formal but not overly ornate. Starched white tablecloths and napkins are standard, as are large plain white plates in a variety of shapes that act as canvases for the food rather than as design pieces. Porcelain tasting spoons are used to present amuse bouche and hors d'oeuvres. The design philosophy for flatware is to keep the settings simple and practical. Therefore, 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo does not use silver but 18/10 stainless steel for its long-lasting wear and more contemporary feeling than silver.
