Go Wild with Game and Grain in Hong Kong
DiVino (G/F, 73 Wyndham St., Central, 2167-8883) will be going wild with a game menu from October 5 to 31 to celebrate autumn and the relatively cooler weather. The dishes aren’t gonna be too hardcore, and diners will be given a taste of the hunt via purposefully paired combinations. For instance, you’ll get to sample deer ragout with handmade, black pepper-scented tagliatelle; or pigeon with risotto and foie gras; or wild boar quashed between chestnut pancakes. Take advantage of this one-time menu by booking in advance.
The flavors of the French Riviera can now be enjoyed at Ivy (Shop 2075, 2/F, IFC Mall, 8 Finance St., Central, 2382-4028), part of the Gaia group’s expanding collection of establishments. Located in the high-traffic IFC, Ivy offers up seafood dishes like grilled lobster and slow-cooked salmon, plus other grain-centric, seafood-focused specialties that are generous on the herbs and spices. The space is long and classy, with hardwood floors and marble-textured tables—not quite the same as going to Cote d’Azur itself,
but as close in spirit as you’ll get, short of hopping on a plane.
