Have been going regularly over the last 2 years. Quality of the food and the experience stays very high, unlike many "high-end" restaurants in Shanghai where chef does not reside. Franck is here everyday and knows his business. Preparation may not be super-sophisticated, but ingredients...More

If you want to impress a business associate, go. But take you credit card, since after a spectacularly delicious meal (the pate is amazing), with a couple of glasses of house wine, your bill will be one of the highest in Shanghai. The staff are...More

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will
sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their
mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area
seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,

When stepping in a bistrot, client follow the chef’s inspiration, and eventually what he found at the wet market few hours before. The menu is usually small, and follows the seanonal products.At Franck, the Menu du jour changes almost daily. Timeless classical parisian bistro fares hasn’t changed, since grand-mother's time.The Starters are to be shared, with generous portions, just like a diner at home. Guests love the casual service, helping themselves to the Terrine de campagne, cold cuts or fresh oysters.
