Capital M Introduces their 4-course Light and Healthy Lunch Menu
So much more than a stunningly gorgeous restaurant with incredible views of Qianmen, the thing I like most about Capital M is their support of organic, local and seasonal produce and their understanding of the importance of sustainable practices.
This is the same environmentally conscious and food-passionate team who also recently organized an anti-food waste and food loss campaign to support World Environment Day on June 5th, and a week-long special menu to celebrate Food Revolution Day, a day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills, which ended with a “Foodprint” debate panel to discuss their take on the current food climate and importance of sustainable practices.
So it makes sense that they’re now promoting a new 3-course + fresh juice “Light and Healthy Luncheon” menu using local, seasonal and organic ingredients, all attributes I am excited to support (and happily consume!).

Fête de la Musique: The Capital Music String Quartet performs the Romantic Greats
This Friday, June 21st, Capital M is hosting a free concert of dreamy French Classical music, as played by their house Capital Music String Quartet, featuring musicians from the Beijing Central Conservatory of Music.
This concert serves as a tribute to Fête de la Musique (since 1982), a day that celebrates all kinds of music, with free performances in outdoor spaces and surprising venues. Fete de la Musique is now held in over 100 countries on June 21, the summer solstice.
“In celebration of Fête de la Musique, Capital M brings you an evening of the Romantic greats, including Debussy, Dutilleux and Ravel.” – Capital M

Join the Fight Against Food Waste
June 5th marks World Environment Day and the theme for this year’s celebrations is “Think. Eat. Save.”, an anti-food waste and food loss campaign that encourages you to reduce your foodprint.
“If food is wasted, it means that all the resources and inputs used in the production of all the food are also lost. For example, it takes about 1,000 litres of water to produce 1 litre of milk and about 16,000 litres goes into a cow’s foodto make a hamburger. The resulting greenhouse gas emissions from the cows themselves, and throughout the food supply chain, all end up in vain when we waste food.” - United Nations Environment Programme
In support of this year’s theme of food waste, Capital M is conducting an awareness raising campaign and they’re putting one of their most prized menu items on the line (their famous Pavlova dessert!). In an effort to reduce food waste, they have announced that for all meals at Capital M (lunch and/or dinner) on June 5th, dessert is on the house if you completely polish off all the food on your plate!

Taste M’s New Spring/Summer Menu
From a vibrant green organic salad sprinkled with pretty pink petals to a “Variety of Eggplant Dishes” or as I like to call “a party of eggplants and everyone’s invited”, Capital M‘s new Spring/Summer menu is a delightful new addition of sure-to-be-new-favorites on their classic menu of modern European cuisine.
Gathering a table of foodies together, we sampled our way through a medley of M’s proud new menu additions including 4 different starters and 3 mains before topping it all off with their marvelous Grand Dessert Platter (as if we weren’t being spoiled enough)!
