It was upscale mayhem. Claret flowed everywhere, the sommelier ended up in hospital and police had to be called when a bride celebrating at trendy Teca restaurant threw more than her bouquet. The wedding party for 100 guests at Michael and Genevieve Yuen's hit French eatery had gone smoothly until, after a long day with most of the guests departed, the new bride began to dispute the party's wine bill. Tired, emotional but determined to show she was able to handle family finances, the bride threw the bill back at the staff. The cheque fluttered harmlessly in the face of unflappable assistant manager Eddie Yip. But the bill folder - a heavy item, stylishly edged in gold metal - whizzed through the air and landed corner first on the forehead of white-gloved sommelier Dickie Chan. Claret went everywhere. The fracas continued until police arrived and calmed the bride. The mild-mannered Chan was taken to hospital for stitches and told police he did not wish to press charges. Teca - which officially opened last month in Happy Valley - has been a success with regular celebrity visitors such as Michelle Yeoh Choo Kheng and Barney Cheng. Owners Michael Yuen (of the electronics manufacturing Yuens and the brother of socialite Andrew) and his wife Genevieve were not present at the restaurant during the action.
