Looking to celebrate a birthday in Shanghai with a special meal. Just arrived in the area and have tried a few local places only, so we probably haven't tried anything you'll suggest!
Thought about Jean Georges but have read mixed reviews (super positive from the NY Times, generally bad from Smart Shanghai users). Would appreciate your thoughts on Jean Georges as well as other suggestions. Looking for something unique / memorable in both food and decor, and of course, something we can get into without waiting weeks for a reservation, if that is a necessary consideration. Memorable, in our book, does not translate to pricey but if it's worth it and pricey, we'll go.
