Shanghai is full of surprises when it comes to dining experiences; almost every week (if I make it out from my cozy nest) I discover a new restaurant. This week I came across a chic and airy space called Initial Restaurant and Wine, a cafe-style restaurant by the very same group behind Hong Kong’s fashion label Initial. If you like shopping at Initial, then you will definitely enjoy having a nice meal amongst the restaurant’s mix-and-matched furniture and retro-chic atmosphere.
住在上海我幾乎每星期都會發現新的餐廳, 讓我覺得上海真是個充滿驚喜的地方。這次用餐的地點很特別, 除了內部令人驚艷的典雅復古風格外, 其實它還是香港知名服飾品牌 Initial 旗下所經營的餐廳。如果你喜歡逛 Initial 的服飾店, 你一定會更愛在 Initial Restaurant and Wine 精心佈置的可愛空間裡享受美食。
There’s also a boutique clothing store by Initial on the side of the restaurant. This place combines two of my favorite things in this world, how awesome is that?
餐廳直接連接到隔壁 Initial 的服飾店, 裡面有許多特別的當季單品以及服裝。沒想到這裡居然結合了我的最愛：美食和逛街, 怎麼會那麼方便～
The food at Initial is decent, but I personally believe the space itself is much more impressive than the dishes it serves. Nevertheless, I will definitely return for more of its gorgeous ambiance and perhaps some shopping as well!
我個人認為比起餐廳的氣氛, Initial 的餐點美味度算是略輸一籌, 不過因為整體用餐的體驗很不錯, 以後還是會再來報到的！Address: 838 Hengshan Lu (near Tianping Lu) 地址：上海徐匯區衡山路838-2號1-2樓 (衡山電影院) Tel: 21.6433.1006 Price Range / 價位: 120 to 200 RMB / person
