Introducing FEAST’s Steak Feast (Every Second Friday of the Month)
Created by the same masterminds of Beijing’s hardcore Carnivore Club, it looks like Executive Chef Rob Cunningham and his talented team at FEAST (Food by EAST) hotel in Lido just launched another genius meal concept – a monthly Steak Feast set for the second Friday of every month. This month’s Steak Feast is set for this coming Friday, October 10th!
Though the concept of a Steak night is nothing new, but I’ll hand it to FEAST to do it right.

Tickets Now on Sale for CFFC 2014 on November 8th in Beijing
Tickets go on sale TODAY (Monday, October 6th) for the highly anticipated Chi Fan for Charity (CFFC) annual charity dinner event, which is taking place in Beijing on Saturday, November 8th! Just about a month away, you’ll want to start figuring out which restaurant and table host you’ll want to book while they’re still available online!
An event praised for bringing together local opinion leaders, celebrities and other charitable-minded individuals to raise money for worthwhile philanthropic causes at Beijing’s top restaurants, CFFC is an inspiring event that involves such a strong community of individuals that really rallies their friends and associates to make this one of the most respected and momentous events of the year.
If you are unfamiliar with CFFC, the concept is easy enough to digest:

Part of Parnas’ 3-Course Summer Set Menu, these Japanese Scallops were Sensational
I’ve been meaning to write about Parnas for some time now as they’ve been open for over a year, but they’ve gone through some big changes and I was keen to see how everything would unfold. I’ve known the owners of Parnas for many years now and have been anxiously anticipating this restaurant’s opening. One of the first customers to try them out, I remember the first time I tasted their truffle mushroom risotto and how I almost cried when I heard that they were still waiting for their executive chef’s arrival.
Since they hired Executive Chef Cyrille Molle (previously of Brasserie Flo), I’ve dined at Parnas a handful of times, each time better than the last. Though there is no longer that truffle risotto on the menu, I’m equally if not more so ecstatic about the rest of their fine dining menu.
Parnas might seem a bit all over the place with its 3-very-different-concepts-in-1-multi-story-complex: an all-day cafe and bar on the ground floor, a fine dining French-fusion restaurant on the second floor and a rooftop terrace on the top floor known for extravagantly themed parties, DJ events and champagne and caviar flowing like it’s nobody’s business.
