The closing of STAY French restaurant came as a sad shock to Beijing's lovers of fine French cuisine.

But Shangri-La Hotel Beijing has acted quickly to fill the void by opening a new French eatery that they promise will be the very best of its kind in the capital.

Azur opened at STAY's old premises, on the first floor of the Shangri-La Hotel Beijing, on July 29. The restaurant is supervised by two-star Michelin chef Mauro Colagreco, who runs his own award-winning restaurant, Mirazur, in Menton, South France.

Colagreco opened Mirazur in 2006 and was awarded his first Michelin star after just 10 months of opening the restaurant, according to Shangri-La Hotel Beijing. The chef got his second Michelin star in 2012.

Stephan Kapek, the hotel's general manager, said the hotel is proud to present such world-class cuisine to customers.

He added that Mirazur is currently sixth on the 2016 World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards list, improving on last year's 11th placing.

Kapek promised that the restaurant will offer "an intimate and warm dining environment with cosy nooks and the best service".

Hotel manager Eric Mommejac compared Colagreco with STAY's chef Yannick Alleno. He said that, having been born in Paris, Alleno's cuisine is more in the traditional and classic French style, wheras Colagreco, with his Italian-Argentine heritage and his period of studying the culinary arts in France, has a greater range.
