Shanghai: Thanksgiving Dinner

Before we left for our relaxing trip to Hangzhou, I had made a dinner reservation for Thursday night at Cucina at the Hyatt. Unfortunately, neither of us checked WHICH Hyatt the restaurant was located in and of course, we went to the Hyatt on the Bund instead of the Grand Hyatt. Instead of just taking a cab (the fastest option), I wanted to walk and it took way longer than expected due to construction and confusing elevated walkways and long story short we arrived half an hour late and frustrated to our reservation. Boo.

Thankfully the place was not at all busy and we were seated next to the window with expansive views of the Bund. Unexpectedly, the Pearl TV Tower shut off its lights at 9pm so we only had several minutes to enjoy that building.

Service was a bit hit and miss but the wine prices were reasonable and Eric enjoyed his Caesar salad and spaghetti with meatballs. I had the 24 month aged Parma ham pizza which was perfectly fine. The highlight of the evening, however, was a delicious chocolate tart. SO GOOD.
