Shanghai Terrace

The Peninsula, 108 E. Superior St.
Chicago, IL 60611


Chef Ivan Yuen’s downright opulent menu—brimming with truffled dumplings, abalone and lobster tails—redefines what fine Chinese fare should look and taste like. You’ll find more gravies, marinades, and garlic-rich sauces here than at your typical French brasserie. Veal shanks come lacquered in a Maotai liquor glaze. Slices of beef brisket, rubbed down with chu hou sauce, bake blissfully in ancient Chinese casseroles. And a mélange of flounder, king crab, scallops, and sea cucumber sits in a special elixir so secretive the waitstaff has been forbidden to reveal what’s in it. Expect a hefty tab and uneven wait times but also the most decadent Chinese dining experience in town.
