The Kitchen Salvatore Cuomo is a little hard to find since it doesn’t have a Chinese name and no one around there seems to know where it is. If you ask for ?? (chu fan) in Chinese, then people just look at you. It is in “Lujiazui”:http://www.ljz.com.cn/ (???, literally land house mouth) near the “Oriental Pearl Tower”:http://www.shme.com/attracti/tower/tower.htm on the “Pudong”:http://www.pudong.gov.cn/ (??) or east side of Shanghai.
Salvatore Como has made a really amazingly good new Italian restaurant right on the river on the Pudong side of town. The views are terrific and it has a great open kitchen and Enzo who runs the kitchen is fresh from the Grand Hyatt Shanghai and is doing an amazing job. The veal the night we were there was terrific and the Tortelli (gigantic tortellini) was really fine. They have a very good selection of wines as well and we had a terrific and not that expensive Chilean red that was just great. The appetizers were really good. I don’t know what it is about me, but I kind of like the appetizers (mezzo plates) better sometimes than the main meal and these were really good. Imported and hard to get Italian cold cuts and such and really great cheese as well.
Give it a try but make sure to call first and I’m sure you’ll be calling trying to get directions too 😉
