NEW AND NOTED
Save Room for Dessert
The current cocktail-dessert craze is full steam ahead, and the latest to jump on the bandwagon is Jerry Maguire (23 Lan Fong Rd., Causeway Bay, 2881-5008), opened by
Paul Kwok, a veteran of the hospitality industry who was involved in the launch of Play,
Volar and Finds, to name a few. The warm, wood-paneled and brightly lit space (necessary for those Insta shots) with its retro pink neon sign is cozy and inviting, with private sections including a back room and a small backyard. There are a few savory items to start, from slow-cooked beef tenderloin ($158) to stuffed chicken wings ($98) but of course the sweet spot is in the desserts and cocktails. With pastry chef Ediwah Tang at the helm, desserts are sure to draw the requisite “oohs” and “aahs” around the table, with imaginative creations such as the Choco Late with chocolate lava pudding and Nutella soil, and the signature Jerry Maguire Cheesecake Crunch—a field of crunchy biscuits, free-form smears of Baileys hazelnut cheesecake, and dark chocolate frozen foam. Continue your romp through this adult candy store with kooky cocktails including the Alice The Wonderland ($198) with rum, midori, elderflower syrup, pineapple juice, and a spun sugar web giving a whimsical cotton candy effect.
