Address: 376 Wukang Road
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 sound track 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).
