email@example.com ) China Jump - which changed its name after its opening in 1992 to the Jump, then back again to China Jump - is currently being completely overhauled and will re-emerge in July as a more stylish, upscale restaurant/bar, more in line with the award-winning branch in Singapore. Founder Michael Hough, managing director of Silver Reef Holdings, says the new menu will include favourites such as hamburgers, steaks and fajitas, and several ostrich preparations will be added. Fans will be pleased to hear that the infamous and popular dentist's chair - in which drinkers lay back and have tequila and lime mix (the ingredients for a margarita) poured down their throats - will stay, although it will be re-upholstered. The target date for the newest China Jump is July 3 but don't fret - the restaurant/bar, at 7/F Causeway Bay Plaza 2, 463 Lockhart Road, Causeway Bay, remains open while undergoing renovation; tel: 2832-9007. Restaurateur Richard Feldman - of Al's Diner, Red Rock, American Pie, Bagel Factory and Food-By-Fone fame (among others) - is waiting on the final building permit before he can start work on the space that was the short-lived Dutch Boy in Lan Kwai Fong. If everything goes as planned, construction should begin in three weeks on Eden, which Feldman describes as an 'upscale margarita bar'. Unlike Dutch Boy, Eden won't be a fast-food joint. Caribbean-inspired food will be served, in addition to margaritas and other drinks. Maxim's is getting fancy with the new Maxim's Express, which opened on Wednesday in Hutchinson House in Central, near the Furama Hotel. The newest store bears the same name as some of Maxim's other fast food outlets. This is the first Maxim's Express to be more upscale in terms of interior design, atmosphere, service and food, in a bid to appeal to nearby office workers needing a quick but satisfying and healthy lunch. The international menu includes Japanese bento boxes, fresh fruit, sandwiches and salads. Barry Kalb, owner of Il Mercato in Lan Kwai Fong, was scheduled to open a new restaurant yesterday in Sai Kung - Portofino on Hiram's Highway. The restaurant is serving Mediterranean food, which encompasses everything from Spanish paella and North African couscous to Greek salad, French bouillabaise and Italian pastas and pizzas. The wine list includes bottles from France, Italy, Spain, and even retsina from Greece. There is a large terrace for al fresco dining. Reservations on 2791-5818. Deal of the week has to be champagne and Chinese Keluga caviar on offer for $10. The catch (if you want to call it that) is that you have to dine at M at the Fringe on a Sunday evening. They're doing this to promote the fact that the restaurant is now open for Sunday dinner. Guests can follow up the champagne and Keluga caviar sampler with chef Katherine Anderson's Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Her creations include starters of spring soup of fresh peas with mint and creme fraiche, Parmesan-parsley souffle with hot red sauce, and deep-fried soft shell crabs on fresh herb pasta, or main course 'roasts' of crispy suckling pig, braised beef shoulder cooked in the way of Provence or salt-encased baked leg of lamb. A great way to finish the meal is with M's popular pavlova. Reservations on 2877-4000.
