Pierre Gagniere in Central, Hong Kong

 

[UPDATE: Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s will visit his Hong Kong restaurant from October 24th to 30th 2019 to Hong Kong to launch his autumn tasting menu. The five-course menu will be available for lunch and dinner from 24 to 30 October 2018 at HKD1,998 per person.]

Bringing Bar Snacks Deluxe to HK

the-lambo

In one of the more surprising moves of the year, chef Uwe Opocensky left his decade long role as executive chef at the Mandarin Oriental to join burger joint Beef & Liberty. The switch has been cheekily described as swapping fine dining for flipping burgers but chef Uwe very definitely won’t be asking you if you want fries with that (even sweet potato ones). Instead he has been busy refining the concept of bar snacks at Beef & Liberty’s recently opened California Tower outlet (itself a new departure for the group with an industrial design by Autoban).
