With its blue-and-copper colour scheme and Scandi-chic chairs, the welcoming interiors of Upper Modern Bistro are light and sophisticated—two qualities the chefs also aspire to in their food. The menu opens with an extensive list of tapas-style dishes such as foie gras, tomato salad and beef carpaccio, many of which are livened up with Japanese ingredients such as miso and yuzu. But don’t be fooled by the “Small Creative” heading—some of these supposedly small plates are as big as the mains. Prices give some indication of portion size, and the staff can answer any other questions about the dishes or about the impressive wine list. Elsewhere on the menu, the onsen egg and salmon teriyaki are must-haves, but most meals at Upper Modern Bistro lead to one thing: the Upper Cheese Selection. Featuring eight generous wedges accompanied by soldiers of toast, this indulgent cheese platter is the undisputed jewel in Upper Modern Bistro’s crown.
