Considering the quality of the food and the reputation of the chef, the price of a meal at Table No. 1 by Jason Atherton is incredibly reasonable. For the same level of food and service at other luxury hotels in Shanghai, you could easily pay twice as much and also possibly get stuck with the typical 15 percent service fee (Table No. 1 kindly leaves that off). The daily lunch set is RMB178 (US$28) for three courses. It never gets boring because the menu is updated about twice a month and always incorporates the best seasonal ingredients. Lunch is also a lovely meal at the Shanghai restaurant because the dining room is lined with glass walls so the space is flooded with light. The regular dinner menu averages between RMB300 (US$48) and RMB600 (US$95) per person, depending on what you drink. The recommended restaurant also offers a discounted “early bird” dinner set between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. for just RMB200 (US$32) per person for three courses.
