[Shanghai 上海] Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire

without comments

Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire

Add: 2F Capella Hotel, 480 West Jian Guo Road
Tel: 5466 9928
Hours: Weekdays 6-10pm, Weekends 6-10:30pm
Price: dinner 400 RMB+/person
Visited: Jul 2017

Amongst the myriad of new restaurants and hotels popping up in Shanghai lately, the most sought after is most definitely Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire, situated inside the Capella Hotel. The famed French chef has opened over a dozen restaurants around the world, the most iconic being his eponymous three-Michelin-star restaurant in Paris, which has been in operation since 1996. (On a related note, Pierre Gagnaire has garnered 17 stars in total). His 16th restaurant – Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire – just softly opened its door in Shanghai.

最近上海新餐廳和酒店如雨後春筍般不斷冒出,而其中最受人矚目,無疑是法國名廚 Pierre Gagnaire 在 Capella 嘉佩樂酒店開的 Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire。這位大廚的餐廳遍布全球,其中最爲出名的是 1996 年開幕于巴黎的 Pierre Gagnaire 同名餐廳,已多年穩坐米其林三星的地位(順帶一提,大廚所有餐廳加起來有 17 顆星星)。就在這個月,他在上海開了旗下第 16 家餐廳 - Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire。二話不說,吃。

The location of the restaurant – Capella Hotel, Shanghai – is a luxury hotel renovated from historical Shikumen structures. It hasn’t been completed yet, and we will have to wait till September to see it in its full form, but expectations are already high. When finished, Pierre Gagnaire will have not just the restaurant and bar, but also a boulangerie / patisserie, as well as a space called “The Lab” designated for culinary private events.

餐廳所在地 - 上海建業裏嘉佩樂酒店 - 是由石庫門建築群修複而成的奢華酒店,目前還未完工,正式開業要等到九月(已迫不及待想要去瞧瞧了)。由 Pierre Gagnaire 所經營的除了有餐廳和酒吧,將來還會有街邊的面包甜點房 - La Boulangerie et Patisserie,以及一個提供 “私人預定的美食空間” - The Lab(其實我也沒搞懂這是什麽。)

[Shanghai 上海] Chop Chop Club

without comments

Chop Chop Club

Add: 2F, Three on the Bund, 1 Zhongshandongyi Lu
Tel: 5308 5399
Hours: seats at 6:30-7pm and 8-8:30pm
Price: 400~500 rmb/person
Visited: Feb 2017

Please note that this was an arranged tasting.

If you’ve been eating and drinking in Shanghai, you should know the name Paul Pairet (PP). This French chef has created many climaxes in the F&B scene here since his arrival in 2005 – Jade on 36 at Shangri-la Pudong, Mr & Mrs Bund at Bund 18, and Ultraviolet, the all-immersive dining experience that ranked #24 on World’s 50 Best Restaurants (in addition to two Michelin stars) in 2016. His most recent project, titled “Chop Chop Club” in collaboration with Unico, just opened a week ago and immediately became (unsurprisingly) the hotspot on the bund.

常在上海吃喝的人,對 Paul Pairet (PP) 這個名字一定不陌生。這位法國大廚自 2005 年以來在上海創造了各種餐飲界的高潮,比如浦東香格裏拉的 Jade on 36、比如外灘 18 號的 Mr & Mrs Bund,比如名列 World’s 50 Best Restaurants、去年得到米其林二星的全方位感官餐廳 Ultraviolet。最近他和外灘三號的 Unico 合開了一家名爲 Chop Chop Club 的餐廳,開幕才一周,已(不意外地)成爲外灘上最受矚目的新寵兒。

Decor at Unico has remained largely unchanged, the only conspicuous difference being the addition of two large electronic screens detailing the carvery menu, constantly updated with time, price, and pieces left. Like this:

“18:30|cote de boeuf|650/portion, 1300/whole”
“19:45|grilled seabass|140/portion, 700/whole”
“20:15|char-roasted chicken|180/portion, 320/whole”

You will notice, upon closer inspection, that the first few items had already been sold out. Why yes, the dishes here go fast, so chop chop and order whatever you fancy before they are snatched by other tables, otherwise there’s no choice but to come back another evening.

走進餐廳一看,Unico 的布置沒有太大的改動,不過架起了兩座電子屏幕。屏幕上寫著每晚更新的 carvery 菜單以及每種料理出爐的具體時間、價格、以及所剩份數,比如:

“18:30|烤肉眼|單份650元,整份1300元”
“19:45|香烤鲈魚|單份140元、整份700元”
“20:15|炭火烤雞|單份180元、整份320元”

仔細一看,前面幾款都已 sold out?!沒錯,這裏的美食不等人, 店名中的 “chop chop” 在英文裏的意思就是 “快一點”,所以在屏幕上看到自己想點的菜別忘了趕緊和服務員下單,一旦賣光就要下次再來吃啦。

What I remembered most about Mirka is the vividly-colored Mirka Mora wallpapers that line the entire dining room. The dishes we had that evening, on the other hand, all seem like a blur to me now, and I debated whether to blog about this restaurant at all if the food wasn’t so memorable. Oh well, let’s take a look at the pictures anyway.

To start, a complimentary plate of fried polenta sticks with sea salt.
