    • Editor's Description
      From the team behind OHA Eatery and the original Blackbird, Blackbird 2.0 is a chic-looking cocktail bar and cafe on the ground-floor of a glass box in Columbia Circle. Chef Blake Thornley is serving up a double-page spread of snacks, mains and desserts. Sophisticated brunch fare. They look real pretty and usually hit the mark. Cocktails (90-100rmb) are fairly inventive, refreshing and filled with homemade stuff. Good for a photogenic afternoon drink.

    • You see the restaurant, then you need to find the entrance, which is somewhat confusing, then you enter what seems to be the back of the restaurant, one does not get a sense of arrival, except a hostess stand with no host? … was able to grab the attention of someone behind the bar, who in turn found a waiter to take us to our reserved table?

      What’s with all the new restaurants in Shanghai with these low kiddie style dinning arrangements, accompanied by what seems to be children’s cutlery. The table needed to propped up by a wedge of paper napkin to stop the wobble. The plates that one eats one’s food off are heavily scratched, and instead of a full napkin, you are proffered several cocktail napkins, good job my father always taught me to carry a handkerchief, I used this as a full-sized napkin. The music is far too loud to hold any form of conversation. There’s less than an aspiring wine list of wines by the glass, coupled with the 5oz measures, which did not quite measure up, opted for two glasses of mediocre Rose, then proceeded to order several dishes, which were accompanied another two glasses of mediocre 5oz Spanish wines by the glass.

      Foie Gras and Malt – lots of whipping going on with this dish Smoked Eel Liver Ears – interesting concept Spiced Shell Crab - The star dish of the evening Duck Breast – must have a bloody small duck three bite size pieces and tough as old boots. Bread basket which you are charged for – totally uninspiring selection of dry bread, good job they offer water by the glass for free! After reading so many positive reviews of Blackbird, I left underwhelmed and unsure what the venue is trying to be, perhaps many of the millennial snappers dinning there do, I certainly won't be returning.
