Down a restored narrow street or hutong, this restaurant has large windows that look onto the bicycle traffic on the lane outside and displays its menu on a chalkboard. It has candlelit tables and a large bar featuring a well-selected list of wines and a large selection of various brands of pastis. The chef buys and cuts all the meat himself. The place can be smoky and prices are high for the quality. The customers are not the only ones to smoke in the restaurant as the French owners smoke too, as might be expected and not really a big surprise! It is probably worth spending a little more and dining at Brasserie Flo.
