Sophisticated, understated luxury hotel dining. In Spring 2016, The Puli finally revamped their long-running Jing'an Restaurant into something called Phénix, with quality ingredients, good service, and a relaxing atmosphere. The menu is just one page, divided into salads, charcuterie, confits (salmon, duck, cod), oysters & caviar, some meatless fare, and larger meat dishes to share, like lamb shoulder and suckling pig. There is a peanut butter parfait that warrants a trip by itself. For drinks, the wine list is massive, and there's a full cocktail bar, as they're working with Bacardi on this. Again, casual luxury is the vibe, and the prices are like upper-upper-mid range. You could maybe get out of here for 300-500rmb per person, depending on what you get into (or you could just grab a salad and some soup, of course). Puli has always had one of the best brunch spreads in town, and the version here is even more incredible, though you'll pay at least 500rmb per person out the door, without alcohol. Totally worth it though, as it includes access to a next-level buffet, two entrees, a dessert, and free-flow coffee, juice, bottled water, and soft drinks. It's a luxury food spa, basically.
Check out one of the city's best chefs, Michael Wilson, doing his Michelin-starred thing, during daylight hours at a fraction of the cost of the dinner. Two and three courses at 198rmb and 248rmb respectively.
Enjoy an Easter brunch spread at PHÉNIX eatery & bar along with chocolate eggs, hot cross buns and our special slow roasted lamb shoulder with roasted potatoes and rosemary. 468rmb per person plus hotel charges and tax.
