Franck Bistro delivers arguably one of Shanghai’s best French dining experiences – so good it will make you want to add a “k” to the word “Francophile.”
As you head down the street, let the smell of freshly baked bread (from Franck’s sister bakery Farine next door) guide you to a yellow and white awning at the entrance to the restaurant (no signage). Upon entering you’ll dig the cozy Parisian vibe – casual, yet sophisticated. . . just like you. Don’t let the all-French menu intimidate you. Ouf! The multi-lingual staff will be happy to walk you through the menu and suggest wine pairings from Franck’s comprehensive wine cellar.
Hard to go wrong, but CHARCUTERIE PLATE and SALMON paired with Franck’s fresh bread will set you in the right direction or try the off-menu SCALLOP AND BEET SALAD. Afterwards, dive into an elegant BEEF TARTARE alongside the FRESH FISH BOWL, PORK BELLY, or FILET DE BOEUF. Don’t leave without sharing the signature SOUFFLE – order in advance due to prep time, but hey, what’s the rush?
“Rien ne sert de courir, il faut partir à point.” Yeah, we know what that means.
