Bund 22 has to be one of the most enviable addresses in the city.  We think that the staff and group behind the newly opened Lady Bund has an absolute gem on their hands,  Housed in a handsome turn-of-the-century building on the Huangpu riverfront, Lady Bund cuts a mesmerising figure. Like the city she calls home, this restaurant is a compelling hybrid of east meets west; chef Fukui Susumu serves up a menu of Chinese, Japanese and Singaporean dishes, while the cocktails show distinct Cuban influences. Designer Thomas Dariel punctuated a playful assortment of chairs with locally-sourced objets d’art, and partitioned the dining areas with a distinctively Chinese rattan screen. An interlacing web of copper pipes hover above the herringbone-panelled reception desk, rolls of wall coverings unfurl above the main dining room, and strips of rice paper artfully dangle atop the brass bar. By day a mural of a man’s elaborately tattooed back catches the eye, but the true stars at night are the arched floor-to-ceiling windows, which let in unparalleled views of Shanghai’s glittering skyscrapers.
