Here, a roundup of things we ate and gossiped about this month – for journalism, for research, for you, readers. 


September is the best month of the year. It’s not even a question. That’s a fact. You best be out there celebrating before the weather turns to shit. This, plus the inevitable end of swimsuit season, means eating is the best way to do it. 

So where are we dining this month? Easy: Bottega’s Xinyuanli location, which has a spacious terrace, has gotten an early start on fall with their new autumn menu. The flavorful additions feature linguine with fresh Boston lobster, cherry tomatoes and chili, and a hearty risotto with Spanish saffron and slow-cooked Genovese beef ragu. 

Just around the corner from Bottega is Beijing’s first location of Shanghai’s popular Boxing Cat Brewery. While BCB beers have been sold around the capital for a few months now, this location marks their first brewing facility up north, so now you can try their TKO IPA fresh. Shareable bites – think sliders and pizza – are also on the menu. (Plus, they’ve got another massive terrace. Xinyuanli is killing it lately.) 

If you must stay indoors, we don’t blame you – Transit just debuted a gorgeous new dim sum-inspired Sichuan brunch. Stop in for a sophisticated take on gongbao jiding (no, really,gongbao jiding) and juicy pigeon. 

But we’ve saved the best news for last: Bottega is opening a Mexican restaurant. Look, we know what you’re thinking (“but they’re the pizza guys!”). But they’ve hired a crack team of top Mexican chefs to craft an authentic menu of food. And drinks – they’re hoping the new spot, just around the corner from Nali Patio Bottega on the plaza’s top floor, will become a margarita-slinging nightlife hub. We’re hoping it does, too.
