The Peninsula Shanghai has maintained a total of three Michelin stars for two restaurants in the second edition of The Michelin Guide Shanghai – the result marks the second year that Yi Long Court enjoys a prestigious two Michelin star rating, while Sir Elly’s upholds its one Michelin star.
The Peninsula Shanghai has also retained its title as the only hotel in Mainland China with two Michelin-starred restaurants simultaneously.
The awarding of Michelin stars to Sir Elly’s, which serves modern European fare crafted by Chef de Cuisine Hans Zahner and Executive Pastry Chef Lucien Gautier, and Yi Long Court, which is helmed by Michelin-starred Executive Chinese Chef Tang Chi Keung and specialises in refined Cantonese dining, represented an important milestone for The Peninsula Shanghai. Under the guidance of Executive Chef Terrence Crandall, The Peninsula Shanghai has established itself as a critically-acclaimed Bund-side dining destination that pushes the boundaries in luxury service and gastronomic innovation.
Diners at Yi Long Court can enjoy exquisite Cantonese dishes, regional Chinese and dim sum favourites, plus inventive creations inspired by the culinary travels of Michelin-starred Executive Chinese Chef Tang Chi Keung. Hong Kong-born Chef Tang, who opened Yi Long Court in October 2009, returned to The Peninsula Shanghai in April 2016. He previously spent five years creating Cantonese-inspired menus at Hei Fung Terrace at The Peninsula Tokyo, which earned a Michelin star during his tenure.
At Sir Elly’s, French-born Chef de Cuisine Hans Zahner and Executive Pastry Chef Lucien Gautier combine their skills to create refined European menus for Shanghai diners to savour. Inspired by classically trained techniques, both chefs share an abiding passion for pairing French culinary inspiration with fresh Asian and European ingredients. The latest rotational menu at Sir Elly’s offers a spectacular gastronomic journey featuring the finest ocean-fresh fish and seafood, Australian lamb shoulder and decadent desserts. The l’aventurier captures the beauty and nuances of Western fine dining, casting a spot light on superb dishes such as royal oyster with schrencki caviar, black cod confit with carrot escabeche and fresh mango, and the wonderfully creative pop corn with corn lemon ice-cream, white chocolate and caramel sauce.
