Depending on the formality of your occasion, Table No. 1 by Jason Atherton has choices for both casual business meals at the long tables in the main dining room and more exclusive affairs in one of the two private rooms. Due to the industrial-chic warehouse décor of The Waterhouse at South Bund hotel — where the recommended restaurant is located — it may not be appropriate for an extremely official business meeting or occasion. But for a younger group or fashion-forward company, this could be just the place to impress. The private rooms guarantee you’ll get focused attention from the waitstaff and the chef himself will introduce the first course, which always gives diners a sense that they are important clients.
