NEW AND NOTED
Bostonian Lobster’s Back
It’s been a mainstay of Tsim Sha Tsui dining for well over a decade, but The Langham Hong Kong’s Bostonian Seafood and Grill (The Langham Hong Kong, 8 Peking Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 2132-7898) has just come out of a two-month makeover to update it for the modern age. The underground space is all about the industrial chic, banishing the American steakhouse look of old for a cleaner, more modern look, complete with exposed concrete walls adorned with contemporary Chinese art. There’s also a brand new craft beer bar, serving up brews including made-in-HongKong Young Master Ales. But the food is still as good as ever, with a revamped menu that retains its focus on sustainable, delicious seafood. Check out the signature “You and I” oysters ($278 for six), freshly shucked and topped with Hokkaido sea urchin, seaweed, sesame and salmon roe. Or the two-day aged beetroot-cured salmon ($258), served with pomegranate molasses, crème fraîche, orange and fennel. But if you’re a traditionalist, there’s no need to panic: old Bostonian favorites such as the lobster bisque and crab cakes still occupy pride of place on the menu.
