Light & Salt
Housed in the site of China’s first Y.W.C.A., Light & Salt is a literary-themed “Old Shanghai” concept, which binds restaurant, bar, and bookshop. The restaurant Miss Ding’s Dining has a menu inspired by the western cuisine that was popular in Shanghai in the 1920s and ‘30s. Highlights include duck pie filled with bone marrow and foie gras and creamy rice pudding topped with rhubarb compote. The space also features a craft cocktail lounge, Library Distillery, which touts itself as a speakeasy (password included). Light + Salt’s generous three-course set menu ($65) make it one of the more reasonably priced fine-dining experiences on the Bund.
