Top 5 French Dining Spots

The enchanting, history filled streets, the beautiful shops, the sublime food at every turn…there’s nowhere you’d rather be than Paris in the springtime. To ensure you get your fill of all things fabulously Francais this spring and beyond, the editors of WOM Guide have put together a list of their 5 favourite French dining spots, especially for Dim Sum & Then Some readers. Top 5 French Dining Spots CAPRICE Housed inside the Four Seasons, Caprice has won many accolades including a whopping 3-Michelin stars. Chef Vincent Thierry leads his team in a quiet open kitchen at the centre of the restaurant. The ambience is open and sophisticated, while the service is seamless, and the menu includes a fine cheese selection that would make any fromage-lover swoon. Crab Tiramisu and Langoustine Lasagne are Caprice classics and not to be missed. Hot Tip: Start off a special evening with champagne, wine and cheeses at the newly opened and equally luxurious Caprice Bar. (Four Seasons, 8 Finance Street, Central, +852 3196 8888) GADDI’S Opened in 1953, Gaddi’s is an iconic destination for classic French dining. Newly appointed Chef Remi van Peteghem’s menu brings forth a set of new classics, which reminds us that the French truly know their food and love when diners appreciate the joy of good eating. Gaddi’s “in kitchen” Chef’s Table provides a unique window into this historic hotel property and remains a foodie favorite around town. (The Peninsula, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, +852 2315 3171) RESTAURANT PETRUS Located at the top of Island Shangri-la, Restaurant Petrus is top-notch all around, with a fine selection of wines, incredible collection of salts, divine food and superbly attentive service. Chef Frederic Chabbert tempts diners with degustation menus featuring dishes so good they may even distract you from the jaw-dropping views. (56/F, Island Shangri-La, Supreme Court Road, Pacific Place, Central, +852 2820 8590) ON LOT 10 This charming restaurant on Gough street is consistently outstanding in all disciplines. The well-trained staff informs you of the daily specials, often spanning from a simple yet perfectly roasted spring chicken to salt-baked catch of the day, sourced fresh from the market. Chef and Owner David Lai has the potential to bring old standards back in vogue, as dish portions tend to be on the larger side while the price tag remains modest. On Lot 10 is a restaurant where quality meets value, and a fun evening is always on the menu. (34 Gough Street, Central, +852 2155 9210) BISTRO DU VIN It’s time to head on down to Kennedy Town.  Great ambience, rustic décor and a wonderful menu featuring all the classics, make this one of our new favourite French hangouts. The signature Bouillabaisse takes flavours from fresh local seafood, while the more complex Coq au Vin is another diners’ favourite. We particularly enjoyed Bistro du Vin’s off the menu signatures, the Bone Marrow with Escargot and herb butter and the Baby Squid a la Plancha are top of the “must try” list.  (Shop 1D, 1 Davis Street, Kennedy Town, +852 2824 3010) Bon Appetit!
