Jesse

Jesse

Whenever local residents suggest going out for a Shanghainese dinner, Jesse is often the favorite destination. This cozy, noisy, and fast-paced restaurant in the heart of the French Concession has been around for decades. While the cult-like following of the original Jesse has spawned a newer, cleaner chain of clones across the city, the original—despite being a bit run down and perpetually crowded—still serves the best braised fish head, xiefen potato soup and Shaoxing wine-marinated crab.
