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


For the F&B world, October is synonymous for its worst nightmare: closures. Most clubs in center city will halt operations until after the holiday, with a few restaurants and bars following suit. Like Arkham, the newest Shanghai import in Gongti. Stay tuned for our full review next month.

Though, there are openings to celebrate. Café de la Poste is officially back in action after closing for a month due to construction. (Wait, haven’t we said this already? Major déjà vu.) 

Over in Guomao, Q Mex debuted a spacious fourth branch in World City (with plenty of outdoor seating too) and some new dishes like spicy slow-roasted pork belly tacos and surf-and-turf pizza with garlic shrimp and Aussie skirt steak. Cool down with cocktails like the Paul Bowles – chili-infused rum, tequila cinnamon, fresh blackberries, lime juice and mint – or the Mexican Bulldog, an upside-down bottle of beer or cider of your choosing dunked in a frosty margarita.

Over in Chaoyang Park, Cravings is going back to its Chinese roots: After opening the latest venture Cravings to Longfu in the Longfusi compound, the original restaurant has revamped their menu to include all Yunnan fare too.

Meanwhile, The Georg released a brand-new seasonal menu with exquisite plates like fresh oyster garnished with cauliflower slivers and lemon ice, and chicken tartar with black caviar and crunchy green asparagus, matched with a sour cream asparagus sauce.
