Second Helpings: New Heights

What: A modern brasserie suitable for casual all-day dining

Why: To sample the new, beautifully plated menu at 3 On The Bund

Where: 7/F, Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu, near Guangdong Lu. Tel: 6321 0909.


Perched at the top of the 3 On The Bund empire sits New Heights. This light and airy restaurant is decked out with blond-wood floors, cool chrome seating and floor to ceiling windows. New Heights also boasts an outdoor terrace, perfect for enjoying the famed Luijiazui view.

Although we have been to New Heights many times, we were intrigued to try the new menu, which we had been hearing so much about. To start our lunchtime feast, we tucked into the Salmon Carpaccio, Seaweed And Sesame  Rice Chips (RMB 90). The 

salmon was deliciously fresh and beautifully seasoned, the perfect light beginning to our lunchtime treat. Next up we chose the Pan Fried Scallop Served With Homardine Sauce And Quinoa (RMB 178). The sweat and tender scallop was naturally the crowning glory of this dish and deliciously meaty.

To end our glutinous lunch, we picked two of the most exquisitely sounding dessert dishes, White Wine Peach With Lemon Chiffon & Peach Sorbet (RMB 75) and Chocolate Moelleux With Apricot Confit (RMB 75). The sorbet was tangy and perfectly offset by the sweet fruit and the chocolaty offering delighted us with a soft and oozing center of heavenly goodness. The relaxed atmosphere and delightful dishes will keep us coming back for third, fourth and fifth helpings, that’s for sure.
