Harlan settles into his Comfort zone

For the record, Harlan Goldstein did not lose his Michelin star for his Lan Kwai Fong steak restaurant Strip House. Absolutely not. In spite of what some nasty journalists have written, its’ not true.

Rusal plays down Barry Cheung's resignation from board

One of these chefs will dress up as a waitress in three months.

In March last year CY Leung's victory in the "election" of the chief executive was celebrated on the website of Hong Kong-listed Russian aluminium company Rusal. This was because Barry Cheung Chun-yuen, then Rusal's chairman, played a significant part in CY's campaign.

Two Michelin chefs will face off in a contest to lose their chef's trademarks - big round bellies - in the next three months. Both will make donations to charity and the loser will dress as a waitress and work at the winner's restaurant for a day.

Harlan Goldstein and Alvin Leung, friends for more than 15 years, met last week and found that both of them had gained some kilograms.

Step into the saucy era of the '40s with a slippery tipple

Celebrity chef and restaurateur Harlan Goldstein is calling his new venture Strip House.

'People will probably let their mind wander a little bit ... 'Oh my God, where are the girls from'?' Goldstein said. 'Well ... the beef comes from California.'

How to cook your own goose

Harlan Goldstein, owner of prestigeous restaurant Gold, recounts a favourite tale. A boisterous group of mainland diners had come to his restaurant. He warned the Beijing-based host that a bottle of 1945 Mouton Rothschild was too expensive. Despite - or perhaps because of - the warning, the host, with his guests looking on, charged the HK$2.3 million bottle of wine to his credit card.

Chef Goldstein could prove to be punching above his weight

What to make of the boxing promotion that is going around Facebook with none other than chef Harlan Goldstein in an aggressive pose attired in boxing gloves? Harlan a closet boxer?

How a chef spun his name into Gold

Chef-entrepreneur Harlan Goldstein started working in a professional kitchen when he was 14 years old, washing dishes in his uncle's restaurant. He went on to cook in Switzerland, France, Italy and the United States before coming to Asia with the Shangri-La group.

Corrections & clarifications

The story 'High-end eatery moving to top of new TST mall' in Property Post on Wednesday wrongly reported that Harlan Goldstein continued to operate two outlets in the IFC - H One and G Bar. Goldstein has not been involved with Harlan's, G Bar or H One for two years. He currently runs only Tuscany By H in Lan Kwai Fong. We apologise for the error.

Chef becomes chief, chief becomes chef

The twists and turns of the Harlan's group of restaurants have taken another ironic spin. Chef Alberto Boccelli (pictured) - whom H One founder Harlan Goldstein originally hired from Milan in 2006 to be the executive chef at Tuscany by H - has been promoted to be executive chef at H One, the prestigious pricey restaurant on IFC's podium level.

Whether jumped or pushed, fans won't be seeing chef H at IFC

Don't expect to see Harlan Goldstein around the IFC Mall restaurants bearing his name anymore.

It seems the larger-than-life chef is no longer involved at the IFC outlets he helped start, including H One, the G Bar, The Box and Harlan's.

Whether the departure was his choice or he was pushed is unclear.

Napa Harlan meets HK Harlan for lunch

It was a case of Harlan meets Harlan this week, as famed Napa Valley wine owner Bill Harlan (far left) was invited by larger-than-life local chef Harlan Goldstein (left) for a private lunch at his H One restaurant.

H-man hungry for more

The H-man is about to conquer IFC. Cocky cook Harlan Goldstein (of Harlan's and Tuscany by H fame) has taken over about 11,000 sqft of the IFC's fourth-floor podium for his next expansion. H1 will be the name of his new venture, due to open in mid-November, with two additional box bars alongside. All three spaces will have full harbour views.

Brash enough for a big gamble

Va Bene couldn't handle the ridiculous rent hike but Harlan Goldstein has the mozzarella balls to take on their pricey old Lan Kwai Fong venue at the corner of D'Aguilar and Lan Kwai Fong. It's no surprise that the big, brash, and boisterous restaurateur (of IFC's Harlan's) would try such a risky challenge. Up close, he's like a cross between Harvey Weinstein and Tony Soprano.
