Description: Heritage - French Flair to Beijing's Dining Scene December 1st, 2012 - Sofitel Wanda Beijing opens Beijing's newest and most exclusive French a la carte restaurant - Heritage. Open for lunch and dinner, the 60-seat restaurant (2 private rooms) boasts luxurious furnishings throughout, bringing a French country style chateau to the heart of Beijing. Intimate, individually-lit tables with exquisite cutlery and accessories in muted, subtle tones give the restaurant an authentic traditional French ambience that effortlessly reflects Parisian elegance and quality. The restaurant aims to offer the most refined of French cuisines in a very stylish setting. Heritage chef de cuisine is the talent behind the innovative menu. Chef has gained valuable experience at several Michelin star French restaurants working side by side with notable French culinary experts who contributes to the renown for the French culinary experience. The gourmet chef has conjured up a variety of dishes for the restaurant using the highest quality ingredients. Heritage has ensured that every aspect, from the choice of dishes to their preparation and presentation, makes a statement and reflects France's traditions of culinary excellence. Heritage's impressive wine cellar offers wines from France's most renowned wineries including Bordeaux, the Loire and Rhone Valley, while also including wines from chateaux and the highest repute boutique wineries from all over the world. Heritage - timeless choreography Since its debuts in August 2007, Sofitel Wanda Beijing's French restaurant has been bringing the French "art de vivre" to the heart of Beijing. Heritage restaurant draws its name from the legacy of French culinary culture. Cuisine of the Heritage is firmly anchored in tradition of fine French cuisine but I dynamically infused with culinary innovations and creative approaches. Heritage doesn't stand alone for food, but for a complete orchestrated dining experience. The French "art de la table" is a combination of emotions blending flavours of regional or imported products, spices and cooking techniques to create a timeless experience of dishes, a ballet of food, wine and service.

“Okay but has room for improvement”
Reviewed 8 February 2009

I must admit, comparing to 6-8 years ago, Beijing sure has come a long way when it comes to fine dining and french cuisine.

Le Pre Lenotre is a prime example. I really like the simple yet elegant decor. The menu however offers very few choices to choose from. We ordered the lobster salad and pan seared foie gras for appetizers and they were pretty good. But it was tale of 2 cities when it came to the main courses. The lamb loin and duck breast were very very average.

Having been to Shanghai and Beijing for fine dining, I think Beijing still got some catching up to do.
