Jade on 36 is the flagship restaurant and bar of the luxe Shangri-La Hotel group's flagship hotel. Both, designed by NY bigshot Adam Tihany, are modern China, two steps removed -- the bar is enclosed on one side by an abstract hot pink and jade-colored jewel box and as you walk along the Italianate marble floors (it's a five-star hotel, after all) to the restaurant, you pass through a blue sculpture that evokes a perforated rice bowl. Neither bar nor restaurant are for small wallets, but for a more intimate (and often better) view of the Bund than the too-high Jin Mao, the bar is a prime choice. The kitchen is helmed by Franck-Elie Laloum, whose style is a bit more contemporary, with bold flavors and colorful presentations. Great for special occasions and business, in particular. The bar should be a requisite stop for visitors.
