The French fancy
Much more than just coffee and viennoiseries, the brunch at Rosewood Beijing’s French bistro is a mash-up of hot and cold breakfast classics with a free hangover-busting cocktail. Poached eggs are served on buttery brioche with smoked salmon and a generous pour of sauce Choron. The creme fraiche pancakes are delightfully fluffy and tangy, too. In typical French fashion brunch is a marathon, not a race. The laissez-faire service gives you the opportunity to sit back and savour your food while watching the action unfold in the open kitchen, which takes centre stage in the dining room.
