The table settings at Tang Court are exquisite. The plates (decorated with figures of women in black-and-pink flowing dresses) were custom-designed to complement the Shanghai restaurant staff’s uniforms, which were created by local fashion designer Lu Kun. Tang Court’s serving plates and teacups are Narumi bone china, and the wine glasses are Schott Zwiesel crystal. The tables have glass tops, which calls to mind the tables in traditional Shanghai homes. The decorative table settings play off the Chinese restaurant’s understated décor — the wall of glass looking out the terrace is the focal point of the airy space.
