M on the Square
Spoke about the UK's contribution to the upcoming Beijing Design Week late this afternoon, which went well. The venue was M on the Square, the latest in the M restaurants, and very nice it is too. They're owned by an Aussie, Michelle Garnaut. Her first was opened 20 years ago in Hong Kong (M on the Fringe); the second 10 years ago in Shanghai (M on the Bund) - where she also established the Shanghai International Literary Festival; and the third five years ago here in Beijing just south of Tiananmen Square. Apparently it took her seven years to negotiate. Anyway, it's very classy, with a fabulous view of Qianmen Gate. Hope to actually get to eat there one day.
