The city's foodies will be glued to their computer screens tomorrow morning for the start of the race to book tables for this year's Hong Kong Restaurant Week, which takes place from February 20 to 26.

The concept, first launched in New York in 1997, was introduced to Hong Kong last year. The idea is for top restaurants to offer a special set meal at a reasonable price for a week. This year, a three-course lunch menu will start at HK$98 while a dinner will start at HK$298.

The list of more than 50 restaurants includes some of the most sought-after in the city, such as Finds, Robata Zawazawa, Chez Patrick Restaurant, The Pawn, Al Molo and Bo Innovation.

Finds' executive chef Jaakko Sorsa has created a four-course dinner menu with a Nordic seafood platter, venison tenderloin, house-smoked salmon fillet and berry desserts.

Michelin-starred Bo Innovation is offering a six-course molecular gastronomy lunch menu for HK$248 featuring its signature molecular dumpling and 'beggar style' quail.

Tables have been filling quickly since Citibank's priority booking service started taking orders on Monday. Public reservations start tomorrow at 10am and can only be made online at
