A Smattering of Michelin Stars for The Peninsula Shanghai
Given the mystifying exclusion of The Peninsula hotel’s restaurants in the Michelin Guide Hong Kong, it’s good to see The Pen’s Shanghai counterpart recognised.
Yi Long Court and Sir Elly’s at The Peninsula Shanghai have been awarded two and one Michelin star respectively in the inaugural Michelin Guide Shanghai, announced today.
Chopstix dined at both restaurants earlier this year and can wholeheartedly give them the thumbs up.
Sir Elly’s is a strikingly dramatic room with Western food that equals the decor in impressiveness. Yi Long Court serves superb Cantonese food under the guidance of Hong Kong chef Tang Chi Keung. As well as the very pleasant dining room there’s a wonderful chef’s table with both windows into and a video screen relaying the action in the kitchen.
Book now while you can get a table.
[UPDATE: Spring Moon at The Peninsula Hong Kong has since, and at last, been awarded a Michelin Star.]
