Fu He Hui:Vegetarian doesn’t have to entail a sanctimonious vegan without an iota of cooking talent foisting 87-grain bread and grapefruit piths on the public. Enter Fu He Hui, an upscale vegetarian restaurant by the veterans behind Fu1038, Fu1088 and Fu1015. Offerings include a hearty mushroom pie with black pepper sauce that’ll titillate even the most stubborn carnivore and scrambled pigeon egg with black truffles and fresh morels. The lavish fare is matched by an equally lavish decor, including two 10 million RMB antique mahogany chairs. Fu He Hui will reportedly occupy the space next to Fu1039.
Captain Rooster: After opening the faithful Chipotle spin-off, Dos Locos, the next step for Chinese-American Charles Zeng was introducing Shanghai to another US culinary sensation: champagne and fried chicken. Captain Rooster will offer both Asian and Western fried chicken including a whole buttermilk fried chicken. Along with champagne, there will be eight craft beers to be announced.
