Fine Dining

By MaryFaith
......... Shanghai.

After trudging around the zoo all day in the pouring rain - we got back to our hotel, dishevelled and starving hungry. We set off down the street - no sign of food anywhere and no-one spoke English. Eventually I stopped a well dressed business woman who did speak english, and who pointed down the street, advising us to go to the the third doorway and take the lift to level three - there was a restaurant there Smile
We stepped out of the lift and into this opulence. We were spellbound - first instinct to run, was stopped by the very gracious staff who made us feel as welcome as they would have done royalty. The meal was delicious - and inexpensive. Truly a memorable evening Smile Smile Smile ( V6 - I shot the photographer! )

Jukka (Kuvailija) I was delighted to receive your valued award for 'Torch Light' - thank you so much Smile

What a wonderful place to enjoy steak and kidney pie. I'm originally from Montreal so this would be a delight. Fine dining competition can bring about some beautiful settings but this is the highest standard one is likely to find. Pale purple crystal in the dining room. White alabaster and marble in version three. So culture rich and in bright, but very fine taste. You delivered these views perfectly. A real pleasure to slowly ponder over each one. TG

Your photography on this subject is excellent showing great composition. Looking at the dated ceiling your choice is good. Well done Mary.
