Serving both lunch and dinner, planning an outfit for a meal at Forbes Travel Guide Recommended Fifty 8° Grill will vary depending on the time of day. If you stop in around lunchtime, the vibe will undoubtedly feel a little more relaxed. Remembering you’re still dining within a luxury hotel, however, you should probably avoid strutting in for a meal in ultra casual attire such as flip-flops and tattered jeans. When the dinner hours roll around, you’ll notice a more sophisticated ambiance that directly correlates with how people are dressed. A stylish outfit for women (a trendy dress or slacks with heels and a blouse) and a button-down shirt for men seems the most appropriate, especially as you’re dining on dishes from famed chef Richard Ekkebus. It’s important to keep in mind that Shanghai is a relatively stylish city in and of itself, so you’d be remiss not to dress to impress.
