Fusion in French Concession

T8 aims to seduce, which it does exceptionally well. Catalan chef Jordi Servalls Bonilla is at the helm, bringing a preference for molecular cuisine with dishes such as tataki of sesame-crusted tuna and foie gras millefeuille (a layered pastry cake). The renovated grey-brick shíkùmén (石库门; stone-gate house) with striking feng shui–driven entrance is the perfect setting.

The dark, warm interior is decorated with antique Chinese cabinets and a carved wooden screen. Reserve ahead.
