So I heard about this randomly – I don’t even remember where. But Paul Pairet, the former chef at Shanghai’s Jade on 36 at the Shangri-la as well as the chef at Mr & Mrs Bund has a new restaurant concept, called Ultraviolet.
It sounds awfully pretentious here’s the text from the website:
Rock Salt 7 Stars Sea Bass, Crushed Urchin & Sea-Water Lime Fizz
Ocean Waves – Seagull and Whales in Love – Scent of Seaweed
Pacific Breeze – Vaporized Iodine Water – Blue Lights
But on the other hand the entire set-up sounds really intriguing. Ten seats every night – Tuesday – Saturday. 2000 RMB per dinner. Meet at an appointed place and then be drive to the dinner. A total immersion experience. So, of course, I put down my deposit yesterday for a dinner at Mr and Mrs Bund and got this “boarding pass” – it’s pretty cool.
And then you need to fill in an informational questionnaire on the website including . . . what handedness you are? Weird. Especially since I am left handed.
Anyways, Ultraviolet opens tomorrow – and my seating is for June 9th – so more to come!
