I messed up. I had meant to post this 5 months ago after my visit back to Shanghai in December 2018. Somehow time flew by so quickly, and it’s already May 2019!
The brunch menu at Highline might have already changed, but let’s hope some dishes are still available. In any case, it’s not uncommon for the old dishes to make a
