Every May, Condé Nast Traveler releases its Hot List, a collection of the best new hotels, spas, restaurants, and nightspots. Check the Daily Traveler every day for a new post from this year's list.

In the former French Concession, this chic bistro-cum-épicerie wears its Francophilia with pride: black café chairs and tiny tables, chalkboard menus, nostalgic photos and maps of the motherland, and a soundtrack of throaty French ballads. Naturally, Gallic fare takes center stage: gallete de cochon, tarte Tatin, and a deliciously nutty pâté de campagne. Sea bass in a light, frothy cream sauce and filet de cerf, or deer, are finds in Shanghai. A gourmet counter sells mustards, hams, olive oils, and jams (entrées, $14-$24).

Address: 376 Wukang Road
Tel: 86-21-6437-6465
