As his menu focuses chiefly on steak and home-style dishes, Tobias Unger, chef de cuisine at The MEET, doesn’t prepare many seasonal dishes. While he might have a couple of specials, the menu at the recommended Shanghai restaurant stays pretty much the same. However, when the holidays roll around Unger always has special menus whipped up to celebrate. At Christmastime, you can expect a cherry-wood roasted turkey, goose liver pâté and Christmas pudding with brandy sauce. For Valentine’s Day, enjoy steak medallions and chocolate mousse. Unger also works with sommelier Donald Yan and brewmaster Leon Mickelson to create elaborate wine or beer pairing dinners. It’s for no special reason other than for the pleasure of food.
