This was, with out a doubt, the opening of the year. The fact that it even opened in the first place is an impressive feat. Renowned chef Nicolas le Bec shocked many a food enthusiast when he abruptly shut down his two Michelin-starred restaurants in Lyon, France, announcing plans to go east to Shanghai. And after two years past, many of us here in Shanghai were beginning to wonder if he was going to follow through on his word. But after a fire and several months of bureaucratic limbo, Villa le Bec opened phase one, a bistro named Bistro 321 le Bec, with pretty spectacular results. le Bec has created a menu that is reverent toward tradition—think: classic forcemeat focused dishes like paté en croute or bavette au poivre—but eager to experiment with local ingredients and flavors—think roast pigeon in a caramelized soy glaze. Pair that with a beautiful century old villa on a serene tree-lined street, and you've got a clear winner. Now, lets see what they do with phase two, their upcoming fine dining concept.

    Villa Le Bec is a top choice in Shanghai for a great meal at a fair price. I have eaten here at least 10 times and I have never been disappointed in either the food or the service. The wine list is extensive. I dream about the Herb Salad... so simple, yet so tasty. The lamb shank and the veal shank are both excellent. The clams are so yummy too!
