Address: Rm 106, Bldg 1, 1107 Yuyuan Lu, near Jiangsu Lu 愚园路1107号1号楼106室, 近江苏路**
Price: ~600-800 RMB for two (dinner) without drinks
Verdict: YES! Classy without being uptight, The Cannery is the perfect venue for various occasions - romantic dates, birthday gatherings, casual drinks, business dinners (although I wouldn't recommend a party over six). I mean, what's not to love about fresh seaood, well-executed drinks, sleek and classy decor, and actually attentive waiters? Located on Yuyuan road (not too far from The Former French Concession), The Cannery serves as a great alternative from your usual Waitan 外滩 (The Bund) spots to impress guests. West coast vibes and menu - reminds me of Vancouver & Santa Monica!
What to order: Steamed imported mussels, kingfish tartare or ahi poke, fish tacos with slaw, Icelandic rockfish
In short, The Cannery is a beautiful new establishment located in the heart of Shanghai founded by the same people behind The Nest.
I'll be back again very soon. I have a feeling this will be my go-to spot in Shanghai.
