  • Atmosphere: After taking off with a bang, Together has survived more than a year in the fiercely competitive Shanghai F&B industry and after sampling their lunch menu I can see why. Dreamed up by some of Shanghai’s well-known culinary giants the restaurant follows a familiar path of French-Asian fusion cuisine. The space is simple and sophisticated.  Think clean lines, pale wood and a brick clad courtyard, which gives it a warm and inviting vibe. Inside, diners get a peek at how the action unfolds with an entire row of seating that overlooks the open kitchen. 

    Food: To me Together stood out because of their flavours. The combinations of ingredients were well paired, showcasing a playful mix of French and Asian style cooking. Bomb sauces and perfect seasoning. You only need one bite of the desserts to tell that there is a mastermind behind these creations. Nothing too fancy, just a selection of classics done exceptionally well.

    Dishes of mention:

    Crispy chicken with celeriac puree and bacon – lathered in an outstanding sauce

    Miso glazed salmon with broccolini – miso glaze was beautifully sweet atop the crispy salmon. Pockets of a rich mole-like sauce took the broccolini to another level!

    Fries – well seasoned and seriously crispy, garnished with what appeared to be a sprinkling of a furikake salt – YUM!

    Salted Caramel ice cream with bruleed banana – nailed it.

    Chocolate brownie – incredibly decadent with a mousse-like texture.

    Sadly there isn't a huge selection for vegetarians and vegans on the menu, but I'd be intrigued to see if they were flexible with adapting certain dishes on request. 

    Service: If it isn’t obvious already I left Together in a really good mood despite it being a relatively pricey lunch.  The service was pleasant and well timed, a successul execution of fusion cuisine. While the portions look small don’t be fooled, the richness in flavour will leave you feeling satisfied. What can I say, I’m itching to go back and see what the dinner menu has to offer.
