This international seafood and grill restaurant was closed for several months while it was being refurbished. Recently reopened, the Bostonian exudes an industrial vibe with colourful artwork on the walls and it has a new, more international brunch menu.

TURN-ONS

The buffet salads, seafood and cold cuts, especially the Waldorf salad with large pieces of apple and walnuts mixed with the crunchy greens and the choice of seafood and cold cuts. The home-made loaf and butter, the sea urchin, blue crab and béarnaise sauce, goose liver on fried bread and home-made mushroom soup is all served before the main dishes - all were outstanding. For mains, we tried the Dijon mustard-crusted beef mignon with chorizo hash and roasted corn flan pepper jus and the spice braised lamb shank with garlic mash and roasted root vegetable, both were perfectly cooked. We were full but were told not to miss the magnums. We are glad we listened. Based on popular desserts such as panna cotta, four mini-magnums of mango, strawberry and two chocolate flavours were excellent endings to an excellent brunch.

TURN-OFFS

We were getting full even before the mains arrived - everything is so good, you just want to keep eating. DRINKS Besides the free flow, there are non-alcoholic drinks and a choice of coffees, such as cappuccino and latte.

COST 

For the semi-buffet brunch, adults HK$588, children HK$368. Free-flow prosecco HK$150 or Champagne HK$300 extra.
