HEIGHTSThis week the Leader Eater assess Shade's merits as a happy hour destination. "My party of three was fairly famished but not poised for a full meal, making the nibble-sized plates ideal for a shared experience. The dishes' substance and brashness in taste is a testament to the quality of Shade's full menu but a reminder that this late-afternoon dining and drinking ritual that has turned pedestrian can still be classed up with the right approach." [The Leader]
