Experience Glam at the Bund

‘M’ Restaurant Group has launched Glam, a sophisticated new Shanghai dining lounge & bar at 5 on the Bund - the same address that has been home to Shanghai institution and Bund pioneer, M on the Bund restaurant.

‘M’, spearheaded by Shanghai’s legendary entrepreneur Michelle Garnaut, is famed for setting new standards of dining in Asia. Her restaurant collection began with the opening of M at the Fringe in Hong Kong (1989), from which she went on to pioneer the revival of sophistication in Shanghai with M on the Bund (1999), and then further enhanced Shanghai’s nightlife with The Glamour Bar (2006). From here, she brought fine dining to the heart of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square with Capital M in 2009.

“There’s something for everyone…over 18 years of age. It’s a fun place for grownups!” says Michelle Garnaut.

The menu, created under the watchful eye of Executive Chef Hamish Pollitt offers a delicious array of modern food designed for sharing, at prices that will have guests coming back often. With each menu, he respects the seasons, highlights local ingredients and introduces something new every month.

Depending on the size of their appetites, guests are advised to choose one or two items from each of the sections, where favourites include the Veggie Pakoras and Sweet Eggplant Pickle (RMB36), Smoking Salmon and Salmon Caviar (RMB48), Chili Salt-Crusted Bean Curd & Black Beans (RMB38), Thai Tah Tah (RMB68), 18-hour Lamb Shoulder Rogan Josh (RMB128), and Ginger-Glazed Duck Dome Pie (RMB108).

The playful ‘Folly Trolley’ is stacked with a revolving selection of desserts including sweet Verrines (RMB42) served in M’s beautiful colourful cut glasses, Alfonso’s Exploding Mango Pannacotta, Carmen Miranda’s tres fash Iles Flotante, Josephine Baker’s Chocolat Mousse, and Pavlov’s Dog … in a glass.
