This hidden gem in the Wan Chai backstreets serves innovative French/Japanese cuisine. The teppan-style open kitchen, arranged around the 12 seats, puts executive chef Daisuke Mori’s culinary skills smack in the spotlight. An alum of Tokyo’s Mandarin Oriental and Le Chateau de Joel Robuchon, Mori offers a seasonal nine-course menu of Japanese ingredients executed French style. Menu items include blue lobster with home-made tagliolini, sakura shrimp with barley risotto, and Hida Wagyu beef served two ways in grill and shabu-shabu style. The sommelier can offer wine pairing, and a vegetarian/vegan menu is available on request, as is lunchtime dining.
