688 Shaanxi Bei Lu
The latest project from Shanghai cocktail stalwart Daniel An takes over the space that previously occupied his old one, Arch on Shaanxi Bei Lu. It’s an izakaya equipped with an industrial-like interior, set to funky sounds with additional seating outside in front of the venue. Unlike An’s other joints, it’s the food rather than the drinks that take the spotlight (though there’s still plenty of booze) with grill options galore to go alongside rice bowls, fresh seafood and some seriously good ice-cream – especially the black truffle, which will have you craving for an extra scoop (and more).
