SFoodie continues our series of translations for Chinese New Year's menus with one from Bund Shanghai Restaurant. Its Year of the Rabbit set dinners include a number of eastern Chinese New Year's dishes that you won't find in Cantonese restaurants. (Incidentally, SFoodie just snapped a photo of an English-language, Shanghai-style New Year's menu at the new Dumpling Kitchen on Taraval.)

Click on the above image, and you should be able to download a printable PDF. Effusive thanks to Adobo Hobo's Ed Chui and his parents for translating the menu. 

Bund Shanghai's set dinners begin at $108 for six to eight people. Here's the highest-end dinner, which the restaurant says will serve 10 to 12:
