    • Editor's Description
      Table No. 1 is a casual mod-Euro restaurant. It's the first post-Gordon-Ramsay project from Jason Atherton, a London chef who just split from nine years with Ramsay's restaurant group. Atherton developed Maze and Maze Grill for Ramsay, opened a few int'l off-shoots, and has now gone on to do his own thing. Spare, plain, uncomplicated. The restaurant is a box with plate glass on two sides; one overlooks the street, one overlooks a minimalist interior courtyard. Expect to spend three to 400rmb per person, depending on your configuration of Snack Plates, Small Plates, Meat & Fish Plates, Vegetable, and Dessert Plates. With two exceptions, everything on the food menu is under 118rmb.

    It's my final few weeks in Shanghai, so I decided to mark some places off of my bucket list this past weekend. Table No. 1 was on my list for awhile and after reading the brunch review on SmartShanghai, I decided to take the plunge and book a table.

    I was immediately greeted upon my arrival and I was able to select my choice of table. I'm not the biggest fan of eggs benedict (which is a good portion of the brunch menu), but the waitstaff happily obliged my request to have scrambled eggs instead. I went with the chef's choice of wagyu brisket and house cured bacon on an English muffin.

    The food arrived quickly (but not in a suspicious way) and it was nice and hot. The brisket was made very well, nice, saucy and very tender. The bacon had a nice smokey and salty flavor. The scrambled eggs were made to perfection (not that they're hard to mess up) and the whole combinaiton of flavors worked well for a complete carnivore's dream.

    The service and ambiance were excellent throughout the meal. The waiters were standing around, but there was none of the looking at phones, or ignoring the restaurant patrons. If you needed to flag down a waiter, they came immediately to your table with a smile. Definitely worth the 10% service charge. The atmosphere and vibe were very nice, not to loud or quiet with good Jazz and R&B music floating from the music system.

    So, if you're looking for a new addition to your brunch roster, try Table No. 1!
    Better before!

    Food, decor and service much better before. New decor is over - done. Portions are smaller. Service, well this is SH. Music is too loud to have conversation.
