This restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine with trendy and creative ingredients that you can mix and match on your own. A great and fun way to enjoy delicious Mediterranean delicacies!
Where the name FIELD came from
The owner established FIELD because he believed that “all city-dwellers have a small dream in their hearts: they wish there was a patch of green fields in the city to allow them to escape their busy urban life, relax and enjoy delicious food as if they were living in the Mediterraneans.”
Hidden in the alleyways of Zhongshan district, FIELD wishes to bring that small patch of rural Mediterranean experience to city-dwellers. In touch with the changes of the seasons, they choose the right time to sow, to reap, to add all sorts of spices, veggies and fruits into their cooking. The restaurant hopes that by doing so, busy, modern-day customers can tune-in to the flow of Mother Nature and bring back happy memories with each bite of their delicious food. FIELD also hopes that its customers can feel how much effort they’ve put into every dish.
To make healthy ingredients taste delicious, FIELD uses lots of spice, vegetables and fruits in their dishes, and also emphasizes the use of good quality oil and protein to balance everything out. Mediterranean cuisine has long been acknowledged as one of the most healthiest cuisines by modern nutrition industry. Plus, by mixing ingredients from the Pan Asian modified Mediterranean diet and combining it with traditional Mediterranean flavors and a fashionable dining experience, this is a great place to share wonderful memories with friends and family.
Southern French Seafood Casserole
At FIELD, an exotic dish you just have to try is their “Southern French Assorted Casserole”. Not only do they use the same technique as making French bouillabaisse for this dish, they also add all sorts of seafood, sweet and rich flavored Artemisia Capillaris (an edible herb commonly found in Chinese medicine) to bring out different layers to the dish, and also macaroni pasta on the bottom to soak in all that gorgeous broth. This is an extremely popular dish at seafood markets in the South of France!
Natural Fruity Sparkling Water
A popular drink in the store is their “Natural Sparkling Juices.” Customers love to order this to cool down from the summer heat. The store puts fresh fruits in a beautiful glass flask and add cool, bubbly sparkling water. Refreshing, plus you get to bring the pretty bottle home! If you want to take a picture on spot, you can use the store’s elegant marble tables and dried flowers as a backdrop. Absolutely stunning!
