Time flew so quickly it could be March 2013 or 2014 when we dined at UV the 4 of us (2 couples), with the remaining 6 guests having flown in specially from HK for the occasion. At that time we were served Menu A and PP was still working on Menu B in an adjoining lab. We have been long-time clients of MMBund and knew the manager and older serving staff and it was through them that we obtained our places otherwise it would have been almost impossible to do so. The dining room is situated away from the chic Bund and it consists of a room with a long table with 2 rows of 5 seats (spaced apart making it not too easy to make conversation during the meal) facing each other. Your name is flashed on the table when you arrive. The meal was a total experience consisting of not just the 20-odd dishes paired with drinks, but also sound, light and images. It's something you have to try for yourself, I would just say that it was impressive, very creative, knowledgeable and we've enjoyed it immensely. We have been to many restaurants and some really good ones in many parts of the world and this was a unique experience that PP worked passionately for after a stint at Jade on 36 (another "favourite" joint of ours) followed by MM Bund. Before we leave Shanghai we should try his other menu, though now with the RMB appreciating like crazy and the menu going up to 3000rmb pax it's not a small expense. This was like the total opposite of our dining in the dark experience and in both cases I guess food is not just for the stomach nor the palette, but also for reflection. I would recommend that you give UV by PP a try if you can afford it.
