Mercato by Jean Georges: When Italian Cuisine Meets Vintage French Design

February 18, 2013

Got a chance to visit this nice Italian restaurant in Shanghai on the 1st day of Chinese New Year (mainly because all other chinese restaurants were either closed or fully booked). Originally I thought it would just be another over-priced tourist spot, stealing the beautiful view of the Bund. To my surprise, it was actually very reasonably priced and the food was very decent indeed. And I was definitely more attracted to the great interior design – the old wood flooring, the iron structure, the vintage decor and furniture, the wall details and cement texture, the mood lighting, AND, the mesmerizing VIEW.

It is vintage French loft design at its best, perfectly matching with the old colonial buildings at the Bund.

Next time you visit Shanghai, don’t forget to go to Mercato by Jean Georges, on the 6th Floor at Three on the Bund.
