Pudong Now Open in Former Mecca Space

Urban Daddy is first to announce that ~PUDONG~ is now open on Market Street, in the former Mecca space. To recap: the chef, Jason Xu, formerly at Shanghai 1930, has created a menu with Shanghaiese dishes (including some dim sum and dumplings, and Shanghai chicken), along with some more familiar Chinese-American dishes, like hot and sour soup, Mongolian lamb, and sesame beef. You’ll also see some French brasserie dishes on the menu, like beef tartare and chicken roulade (you can read the entire menu here, via The Inside Scoop). The atmosphere includes marble floors, and the famed circular bar (surrounded by large booths and tables) remains. And it’s open late: Tue-Sun until 1:30am, with a late-night menu served after 10pm.
