                     Conversation between art and food

As you escape the hustle of Huaihai Lu for quieter French Concession streets, take a detour into Diage, where you'll find an unexpected Eden.

Inside, white-molded ceilings, wrought iron ornamentations and a cigar display create an old Manhattan charm. The space is part art gallery, part boutique, part bar and restaurant. The conservatively seasoned meat and seafood entrees run a bit steep at ¥148+, but the appetizers and desserts, rich in fusion flavors, like the Toffee Banana Spring Roll (RMB 48), are worth every yuan. If you're in the mood to splurge, the seven and nine-course dinner sets (RMB 250-350) are your best bets for getting a full taste of the menu. Just as its name - a permutation of "dialogue" and "age" - suggests, Diage keeps alive the timeless conversation between art and food.
