If you want to be seen, don't wear white in this versatile
new space, where the color is used from the fashionable modern decor right down
to the crockery.
Such stark design allows the restaurant to transform itself to hold guest
art, photography and even fashion shows. Spago has already become a popular
lunch spot with pasta, Western, pizza and Asian sets for RMB 19, 29 and 39. In
the evening it moves towards the contemporary continental. A match for anything
on the Bund but at a fraction of the cost, the grilled lamb chop with cous cous
(RMB 75) came infused with rosemary and served with grilled asparagus, eggplant,
zucchini and mushroom.
A main dining area along with more intimate alcove tables makes for a
pleasant dining experience. Perfect for fashionistas on a shoe-string.
