Shanghai’s homegrown food festival returns this month for another big love-in with the city’s favorite chefs, mixologists and DJs. They’re sticking with sunny garden rooftop of The Place as the (weatherproofed!) venue, only this year’s theme will follow a 20s garden summer party.
Cooking up a storm will be local favorite Danyi Gao (Shake), reps from the Kelley Lee clan (Liquid Laundry, Cobra Lily), special Spanish-style tapas from staple elEfante, breakout star Beth Cosgrove from Alan Wong’s (who drove us wild with that truffle butter ramen), vegan chef Daphne Cheng, who’s fresh off the boat from New York, and a Kim Melvin (Commune Social). The latter will be enacting a strict dessert-only policy at her booth – a rule we can totally get behind.
Bar stars this year include Raphael Holzer (from HK’s Yardbird) and Colin Tait (Shake). Guests can also expect a craft beer garden, lots of dancing, surprise activities “à la Iron Chef.”
