    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      An under-20 seater serving pan-world small, sharable fusion dishes from an ex-surgeon chef. Their wine guy will recommend some wines to go along with it. Camden, the host, also of Egg and next door's Bitter, will have breezy conversation with you if you like. Food is folksy and approachable but also quite finely-wrought and calculated. This one feels like it's coming from a very classic Shanghai sort of place: a reverence for "the event." Good spot for Shanghai scene foodies.

      What a great find on Wuyuan Lu, that is Bird Wine Bar & Kitchen, more than just a hole in the wall.

      One needs to book on a Friday evening, it gets busy, as people like to linger, and what a pleasant surprise Bird Wine Bar & Kitchen turned out to be, with their innovative selection of dishes, you can feel that the kitchen team have “given their all” in preparing the dishes.

      Ordered the following dishes:

      Potato puff, along with the Melon gazpacho and basil sorbet, these were outstanding, as was the Octopus, and Chicken nuggets.

      The only dish that I felt was a little flat was the Choux pastry dessert, choux pastry at the best of times is not the easiest of dishes to maintain a decent puff especially in the humidity of Shanghai, it fell a little flat and became soggy.

      I understand the dishes will change on a monthly basis, the Chicken nugget dish is one they should keep, for the interesting combination of flavours, and bears no resemblance in any shape or form from those of a fast food establishment.

      While the dishes can be for sharing, they also work well for one, and there was a pleasing number of solo diners with a smart device and a glass of wine or perhaps they were just those waiting for their date to arrive. I always think better of restaurants where people feel comfortable eating alone.

      There is a wide range of affordable and interesting wines by the glass, coupled with the fact that the pours are more than the thimbles of wine that are being served at some of the other newly opened establishments in Shanghai, this is a plus for me.

      The wait staff are friendly and unobtrusive, lovely atmosphere in the place, nice to see the chef and bar man interacting with the clientele.

      A great deal for a Friday night out, all for just 800RMB for two pax, a steal. I look forward to the roof top area opening in the cooler months of Autumn, can only recommend Bird Wine Bar & Kitchen and will certainly return.
