The beloved purveyors of American diner classics closed briefly over Chinese New Year to renovate their digs, and are re-opening just in time for this weekend's hungover brunches. Drop in from 9am-midnight daily to check out their new digs.
It seems breakfast is the theme of the day because Breakfast Company in Jing'an is finally open for business too. In what was perhaps the biggest fail in F&B of last year, these guys slapped up a sign that proudly announced themselves as "The Arashiyama Breakfast Company open since 2018." With hours listed from 10.30am-8pm daily, they may want to edit that sign to "The Arashimaya Brunch Company open since 2019."
