They say behind every great man is a powerful woman. This seems to be true of famed French chef Jean Georges, whose wife, Marja Vongerichten, recently opened Korean eatery Chi-Q. Decidedly more low-key than its glamorous neighbors at Three on the Bund, the restaurant lacks the sweeping views of Lujiazui but is big on style. Chi-Q’s central communal table—equipped with traditional Korean BBQ grills—sets the fun, laidback vibe for the rest of the 90-seat restaurant. The menu serves semi-authentic Korean favorites jazzed up for the fancy palettes of the Bund (warranting the inflated prices of the Bund too). Think bibimbop rice bowls topped with a hunk of foie gras and premium cuts of wagyu beef to grill at the table yourself.
