Unico is a cocktail and tapas lounge by Michelin-starred Argentine chef Mauro Colagreco. The menu is divided into various compass coordinates that represent various regions of Latin America like Patagonia and the Caribbean. Expect flavors like "Fresh Crab Meat with Avocado and Grapefruit" or "Clams with Smoked Eggplant Caviar and Criolla Sauce." Cocktails run a wide gamut in price and style -- lots of rum and pisco, of course, but also several unique wine-based cocktails as well.

I have been there three times, cocktails are unusual, although a little pricey. The tapas are amazing, i recommend suckling pig and stuffed green bell pepper. portions are small. The empanadas are a "miss", which is more like fried wonton. The atmosphere is cool and so is the music. A great place to bring visitors, although no roof top or window view.
I think this is a wonderfully designed place and a welcome addition to the Bund. It seems not long ago the western food choices were simply French or Italian and it's nice to see place like here and jack london offer some new cuisines for the local market.
I'm going to take a moment to discuss the steak knives. Really really great. They are apparently imported from Argentina. It's the first really steak knife I've held in my hand in China. Their beef is also imported and it's deliciously tender, cuts right though, but the portions are tiny! I wanted to get another portion but decided against. The price is appears to be reasonable and of value, but then you see the portion size.....so....
I didn't have a lot of time for a meal, so only tried the one entree then had to run, but I'm excited to come and try more of the menu.
Ordered a dirty martini (simple drink but rarely done right) and it was superb. Overall service was sub-par, but they're new so hopefully next time it'll be better.
The Bund seems to be going through another transformation and this is a great add!
