It Takes Two To Spoon
Despite an influx of new-wave, “funky modern” brunches in the city, sometimes the classics still prove to be the best. For unbeatable panoramic harbor views and homemade artisanal brunch dishes executed with finesse, spend a relaxing Sunday at Spoon by Alain Ducasse (InterContinental Hong Kong, 18 Salisbury Rd., 23132256), now offering a $888 brunch inclusive of a glass of champagne, and a selection of wines to pair with the parade of classic brunch dishes. As you take in the city skyline, you’ll be presented with a warm basket of viennoiseries, plus homemade organic muesli. Munch on a selection of artisanal homemade breads slathered with premium Bordier butter as you peruse the mains, including meat or seafood and an oven-baked “cookpot” of cereal and seasonal veggies. There are more goodies to pack in before the main event arrives, from Iberico ham and pickles to homemade salmon gravlax and eggs prepared any way you want—scrambled, sunny side-up, fried, poached with truffle and herbs… Of course, brunch at this InterCon institution wouldn’t be complete without a selection of fine French cheeses (the smellier the better) and a tempting array of desserts by pastry chef Oliver Lannes: including sugar-free options, if you still happen to be counting calories at the end of the day.
