Top Expo eatery reopens

A TOP restaurant restaurant that attracted daily queues of diners during the World Expo 2010 reopens next week.

When the Expo was on, visitors would wait for a hour for a table at Le Restaurant Ecole Institut Paul Bocuse on the fourth floor of the France's Rhone-Alps Pavilion.

One of the most popular foreign restaurants among Expo visitors, the 200-square-meter includes an open kitchen that allows visitors to watch the French chefs at work.

The Rhone-Alps Pavilion itself will reopen early next year with new exhibits on the Puxi site, after the French region yesterday signed a contract with local operators of the Expo pavilions.

Its reopening will help mark the 25th anniversary of the establishment of a friendly relationship between Shanghai and the Rhone-Alps region, Jean-Jack Queyranne, the regional president, told Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng yesterday.

The four-story Rhone-Alpes Pavilion covers 3,000 square meters in the former Urban Best Practices Area.

Its restaurant will reopen on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at noon, Thursday nights and Fridays from next week, said Sun Jinglei, a press official for the French pavilion.
