Chefs DeAille Tam and Simon Wong opened and ran Bo Shanghai in Five on the Bund
a few years back, winning a Michelin star for their efforts. Then the place closed. Oops. But now they are back, after spending 2019 traveling around China, and they are getting ready to open a fancy new place. Obscura
describes itself as "innovative modern Chinese cuisine
" while "expressing the classic flavors of Chinese dining with equal measures of respect and innovation, Chinese culture and Western techniques". Okay. It's not open yet but already they promise a "captivating journey filled with unexpected and profound moments." They are aiming high.
The tiny space is in a three-story villa on Xikang Lu and reservations are already hard to get; they open in mid-November and by the time I called, they were almost booked until the end of the month for their 2,000rmb set menu (reservations require a 500rmb deposit). If super-luxe fine Chinese/western dining is your thing, you'll want to book ASAP. See their details here
