Yi Long Court offers seven different private dining rooms, each named after a famous tea that is grown around China. Every room comes with tall, striking windows that look out onto various parts of the Bund and The Peninsula Shanghai’s rambling gardens. The biggest (called the Red Tea Room) is like dining in someone’s particularly elegant drawing room. It’s decorated with interesting, vividly colored modern Chinese art, big wooden bureaus and large couches in the sitting room. For foodies who are interested in watching the kitchen in action, the Shanghai restaurant has also just renovated its chef’s table. Slightly sterile, with gunmetal gray tables and chairs (big enough to seat eight), you can get a view of the chefs at work in the kitchen through a pair of windows while still having a space all to yourself.
