It's our anniversary....
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last month. We were supposed to be baskin' under the heat of sunny Mexico, that was the original plan. But, as I mentioned on my previous post, due to unexpected circumstances, we had to cancel the trip.
Stuck in the cold, rainy Shanghai we just decided to have a simple dinner date on a newly opened fancy Italian restaurant along The Bund in the riverside area.

We started the night at the newly renovated Velvet Lounge for aperitif. It was a Sunday so the bar was empty. I kind'a like it like this...quiet, more relaxed, Cuban ambiance.

So here we go to the dining place at Bocca along The Bund...quite fancy
Located on the 5th floor of the revamped historical South Bund 22 building, Bocca is a lovely spot carries an elite swagger on a pretty tranquil corner of the Bund with classy white décor, plush seating and dim lights. It has a magnificent view of the Huangpu River and the lights of Pudong.

Their Christmas meal consists of a 6-course, panettone based, sumptuous meal so brace yourself :)
|Salmon & panettone for starter- a perfect combination of sweet & salty|

|Lobster soup with toasted panettone|
|Sorbet..a bit too bitter. I didn't finish it|
|Lobster risotto...it's ambrosial|
|A choice veal steak...but I'd say the meat wasn't the best I had|
|The finale....panettone in blueberry sauce. It didn't fail to impress|
The over-all dining experience was awesome: the dishes, specially the starters, are very delectable, the place has a delightful ambiance.
I will share with you my lovelies in one of my posts a few snapshots of my wedding. I thought it would be lovely for you all to see :)
Looking forward for Friday funday!
Ciao a tutti!
