BAO LI XUAN
BAO LI XUAN
The two-Michelin-starred Chinese fine dining restaurant Bao Li Xuan serves haute Cantonese cuisine. With Chef Fu at the helm, the menu fuses tradition with quality and seasonality.
Bao Li Xuan occupies an elegant space on the third floor of Shanghai’s historic Chamber of Commerce building, now part of Bulgari Hotel Shanghai. The restaurant’s design pays homage to old Shanghai with turquoise raw silk wallpaper, black lacquer panels and art deco patterned carpets. Set beneath impeccably restored coffered ceilings, décor blends a sleek Chinese aesthetic with contemporary flair, expressed in elements like the custom-made Italian chairs by Maxalto and artistic lighting by Flos. Six private dining rooms, available for exclusive banquets or dinner parties, are each clad in a different colour silk wallpaper – a tradition native to China – in hues inspired by Bulgari gemstones and adorned with hand-drawn jewellery sketches from the Bulgari archives.
To complement the cuisine, the resident sommelier can help guests select fine wines from the large walk-through wine cellar, as well as a variety of Chinese baijiu, yellow wine and fresh teas.
In recognition of Chef Fu’s culinary excellence, Bao Li Xuan was awarded one Michelin star in 2020 and two Michelin stars in 2021.
