Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

外滩上的一朵花

到了上海的当晚,Mei 来电约第二天中午在外滩3号五楼黄浦会餐厅见面,说“那儿的环境你会喜欢的,听说评为上海最顶级的时尚之地。”!这我信,因为在某些兴趣,爱好方面,我俩一拍即和。同时也想好好 Feel 下被当今社会视为时尚的脉搏,于是特意地早到10分钟闲逛一会。
外滩3号— 总高7层,底层是 Armani 专卖店,落地的透亮大橱窗,现代装饰,给这座老式的建筑楼带来一种深厚的温暖了。往上的楼层是4家独一无二的餐厅,依云水疗和音乐沙龙,整橦大楼—将浓郁文化,艺术,美食和音乐,贯穿在时尚的空间,融为一体。
这让我想到三年前的新天地,当时置身于人海中,对那里狂热的气氛始终纳闷,或许是自己多年在外,已被平静的生活麻醉了?!然而,还容不得多
     想,即被闯入视线的一幅壁画所吸引。。。

 

           听Mei讲来,这是模仿上个世纪20年代的一幅名画。两边两个高大的男子是两个大力神,中间
         那个女子的原身是一个妖艳的蒙面纱的埃及女子,原来的主题代表“女权”。到了黄浦会,只
         是截取了这幅画上世纪20年代的创作时间的概念,因为整个外滩3号也刚好是那个时间的建筑。
         原画中的埃及女子也遭遇“变身”,成了一个古典含蓄的中国女子。
 
 
 
 

           餐厅的正中是一盏几乎垂地的金光灿烂的 SWAROVSKI 吊灯,大块别致的暗色彩的玻璃将
         临江的座位与主用餐区隔开,透明构造的墙面使外部的风景展现于整个用餐大厅,衬托出一种
         静谧的气氛。It is my favourite place ! 终于明白为什么 Mei 约我在这见面的原因了。我们
         选了临窗的位置,正午时分的浦东盛景,就在身边。
 
 
 
 
          Lunch Set (198元/例)—是中餐的做法,西餐的形式上桌。先是精致开胃菜两款,再上
          例汤,接下去是主菜,最后是点心和甜品。
 
 
 
 

        全套进程中是清一白色的餐具,简约精致,给人舒适洁净的感觉,一道上来,前一道撤走,没有
        满桌杯盘狼籍的现象。“中国也开始将吃饭当作一种品味,一种艺术,你说呢?!Mei 悄声问道。
        是啊,如什么时候不把它作为一种时尚来流行,就自然多了。Anyway,  I have a wonderful
        time!

        虽不是周末,人却不少,还看到有各种肤色说着各国语言的人不断的进进出出,外滩3号 — 像
       一朵开在 shanghai 的花。

        Summary 
        会面聊天倒是个不错的场所。Lunch Set 较适合女士。至于餐厅待员的仪态,仪表及礼仪等好像
        还欠缺些。比如,说话音量偏高,手势过多, 撤换餐具时,要先征得客人同意,…
        相信,若干年再来,又是另一番感受。

    $200 / set.  Not exactly an economy lunch.  I heard these days shanghai is becoming polarized in the sense that the rich are extremely rich, and the poor has practically nothing.  Man.
     
    If I was to meet up with a friend, I would hit BreadGarden (not sure if there is such a place in Shanghai).  You got your $5 piece of cake, and talk all you want.  The place opens 24/7.  I am not cheap, I just think that the whole point of meeting up is to talk and catch, food really is not a priority at all.
     
    Hope YN don\’t find this comment offensive, because that was not my intention at all.  I am merely doing my regular commenting, that\’s all.

    Well, if you want to talk about the price of the  food, that depends on which place you go. In some fancy house, one cup of tea will easily cost you 200 Yuan.
    Also, some people do care the place, I will guess — It is all about an image, an image is all about everything for someone, epecially in China.
    No, you didn\’t offend me, F D. Probably you haven\’t been there 6 years, the way you think now which will be totally different when you are in China. Even me, every year I have to adjust myself  to get use to it, it is not that easy, but  — Well , when in Rome, do as the Romans do. Right , F D ?! ^_^

    Yes YN, you are absolutely right.  I was in Rome, and I DID do what Romans did =)
     
    You are funny, I like that in a person.

    味道一般般,或许你可尝试四楼的法国菜。但不要在晚上去哟,价格要翻3~4倍,不值!那些天,我的情绪和胃罢工,没食欲,故选了中餐。吃已不是重点,主要还是想 Feel 下环境而已。那里,你会发现有一种浮躁感,就像当年在新天地。 今年再去时,除了外地的,已见不到多少本地人了,这就正常liao!  Russ
    Then it is not your lunch set, and tip? haaaaaaaaaa, welcome ^_^ !
