Fodor's Expert Review Shanghai Terrace
As precious as a jewel box, and often as pricey, this red, lacquer-trimmed 70-seat restaurant hidden away in the Peninsula Hotel reveals the hotelier's Asian roots. Come for upscale dim sum, stylishly presented, and luxury-laden dishes such as Peking duck with Mandarin pancakes, wok-fried shredded beef, and braised giant tiger prawns. A patio that seats up to 60 during warmer months lets you revel in a relaxing meal four stories above the madding crowds of Michigan Avenue. Though fans admire the attentive, professional service, some warn that diners with larger appetites might leave feeling unsatisfied.
