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.
