Shanghai Chinese New Year Restaurants

I am planning a birthday celebration during Chinese New Year this year and quite a lot of fab shanghai restaurants appear to be closed. Does anyone have any great ideas for:
1) Special Birthday dinner venues; that
2) might be open during CNY?

Any help will be much appreciated!

  1. "During" CNY or specifically on New Year's Day?

      During CNY - specifically the 3rd day of CNY (feb 2)

        Which ones do you think will be closed? I think most restaurants will be open by Feb 1.

          I've called char and 8 1/2 Otto so far and both are closed from 27th - feb 4! Any recommendations for other places to try that are likely to be open?
