Michelin Three-Star Maison Lameloise To Open Outpost in Shanghai

French fine dining restaurant to open at the Shanghai Tower


Ho-hum, here comes another “Michelin” chef ready to get his hands on a piece of the Shanghai F&B pie. Care to take a guess at what kind of restaurant it’ll be? 



You got it—French fine dining. Because Shanghai doesn’t seem to have enough pricey French fare helmed by a chef who doesn't actually live here. Pardon me while I stifle a yawn. 


The latest big name making the jump from France to our fair Paris of the East comes in the form of one chef Éric Pras. Why should you care? He’s a recipient of the prestigious Meilleur Ouvrier de France craftsmen award, given only every four years at a competition where pros set out to create a masterpiece in their particular field. It's kind of a big deal.


But mainly, he’s the leading man at Maison Lameloise, a three Michelin-starred restaurant in Chagny, Saône-et-Loire that’s seen 100 years of renown since its opening in 1921 (and Pras has maintained that rating since taking over in 2009).


Chef Éric Pras


Mid-2018 will see Pras bring the Maison Lameloise name and concept to Shanghai. Since everyone loves to enjoy a luxurious French meal from the heart of an office building, it will be setting up on the 68th floor of Shanghai Tower. At least the views will be great. 


The latest influx of French fine dining venues with celebrity chef tags has been nothing short of underwhelming—as Shanghai is learning, a name doesn’t guarantee the same quality it’s earned elsewhere. Thus, how much stock will hold from the names Pras and Maison Lameloise remains to be seen.
