Located in the trendy Jing'An district, in a red-brick building that used to house a police station, the Commune Social is a cool collaboration of culinaria and style (the building also houses the flagship showroom of cool kid boutique Design Republic). The Social Commune is run by British chef Jason Atherton, who also heads up Shanghai’s Table No 1, and has fast become a favorite with the city’s in crowd. The playful menu is made up of small plates designed for sharing, and includes such delicacies as sea urchin and pepper butter on ciabatta and miso-grilled mackerel topped with cucumber cubes, wasabi avocado mousse and cucumber skin jelly on offer. There is also a meat and grill section (the suckling pig is recommended), and a separate desert bar that dishes up some deconstructed sweets.
