Custom made and expensive in feel, the table settings at Jin Xuan are all uniquely tailored to fit into The Ritz-Carlton fold. (The restaurant is located in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong.) Ebony chopsticks inlaid with silver are printed with the Jin Xuan characters. Plates, made by Lucerne, are heavy, white porcelain. Atop each plate is a leather place setting in the dining room’s signature deep purple and stamped with the Jin Xuan logo. Wine goblets are of high-end crystal. Tea cups are tiny and delicate, each holding only a few mouthfuls of tea that, nearly as soon as you drink them down, are refilled quickly to emphasize that fresh tea flavor.
