Frenchman Gilles Pardon opened L'Alcove in March, 2013, citing a lack of French outlets in the neighborhood. L'Alcove literally means a small, quiet room in the house where you can chill and relax - and this is exactly the concept Pardon has aimed to create in his eaterie. This unpretentious restaurant and lounge serves authentic, traditional French food of the kind you find in a French mama's kitchen: from cream of mushroom soup for 40 yuan (US$6.5) and quiche Lorraine (50 yuan), to tender beef slowly cooked in a French wine sauce (128 yuan), salmon roulade (98 yuan) and raclette (88 yuan). Snacks start around 40 yuan and mains from around 75 yuan. A simple lunch costs 50 yuan and dinner is about 150 yuan per person without wine. The atmosphere is authentic French: a chilled space to eat and drink with friends till 2am daily. There's a big selection of French wines, liquor and cocktails as well.
