The executive chef at CHAR Bar & Grill inside the Hotel Indigo Shanghai is Australian Julie Donohoe, who was previously executive chef at the InterContinental Hotel in Sydney. Donohoe is one of the few female executive chefs in Shanghai. Her unique take on steakhouse cuisine includes incorporating Asian influences and flavors, and offering lots of playful and interactive details, including presenting you with six different knives to cut your steak and a variety of exotic sea salts. Donohoe’s flavors and presentations are not only novel but they work, breathing some fresh air into the steakhouse concept.
