BAO LI XUAN
BAO LI XUAN
Bao Li Xuan is located on the third floor of Shanghai's historic Chamber of Commerce Shanghai building. With a name that means nature's treasure and magnificence, it serves exquisitely prepared Cantonese classics created by Executive Chef Fu from Hong Kong. His techniques combine contemporary and traditional Cantonese flavours and he was the recipient of one Michelin star for his Macau restaurant and two Michelin stars for the restaurant he presided over in Hong Kong for many years. For lunch, there is a beautifully prepared dim sum menu.
Restored coffered ceilings and elegant design pay homage to Shanghai culture; the room is finished with turquoise raw silk wallpaper, black lacquer panels and art deco patterned carpets. Custom-made Italian chairs by Maxalto and artistic lighting by Flos give the room a contemporary feel, while six private dining rooms are each decorated in their own colour of silk wallpaper. This practice is a Chinese tradition, but here it is given a Bvlgari update in hues inspired by Bvlgari gemstones and adorned with hand-drawn jewellery sketches from the Bvlgari archives.
Bao Li Xuan's wine cellar houses a vast selection of international bottles, and the resident sommelier is always on hand to guide guests in their choice.
