Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire celebrated its launch at the brand new deluxe urban resort Capella Shanghai on July 15. The guests sampled the restaurant’s signature brand of French delicacy, sipped well-crafted cocktails and fizzing champagne, and relished live DJ and swingy jazz music.
Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire is the physical form of Multi Michelin-starred French chef Pierre Gagnaire’s first culinary concept for Mainland China. With the brasserie now sitting in the throbbing heart of former French Concession, it is dedicated to serving exquisitely curated French cuisine while preserving the historical heritage known as shikumen buildings.
