Brough to us by Jun Nishio and Sam Norris (Wishbone
), Xime is just well-thought out, no-pressure, Japanese comfort food and drinks. The space is divided into two, with the requisite Japanese-style bar seating in the one room and a more general dining area in the second. For lunch, it's catering to the legion of white collars who work at The Place. Rice, udon, and soba sets are 58rmb to 68rmb with a nice variety available from meat to veggie. For dinner, Japanese-style hot pot, a la carte meat, seafood, and veggie dishes, a section of quirky Chef's specials and seasonal dishes, and sashimi platters. They are also doing their own shochu infusions for 50rmb each.
