This is a Valentine's Day unlike any other with restaurants closed across Shanghai. Still, a few hold outs are attempting to wine and dine you in style. If you can't be convinced to leave the house for the meal, there are even a few delivery and takeaway options. In these interesting times, make sure to call ahead and confirm that the restaurant of your choice is open.
