FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Features -

As the sun set be­hind the South China Sea, a wave of movers and shak­ers from the food and bev­er­age sec­tors of Hong Kong and Ma­cau flooded The Ocean in Repulse Bay for a glit­ter­ing cock­tail party to launch the 2016 edi­tion of Hong Kong Tatler Best Restau­rants.

Spon­sored by Per­rier-Jouët, San Pel­le­grino & Ac­qua Panna, and Li TV, the event held in the newly-opened Le Comp­toir restau­rant saw over 260 at­ten­dees, in­clud­ing Hong Kong and Ma­cau's best chefs, restau­ra­teurs, in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als and food per­son­al­i­ties—among them the leg­endary Pierre Gag­naire him­self, who ac­cepted the Top 20 Award for his epony­mous restau­rant along­side ex­ec­u­tive chef Jean-De­nis Le Bras.

Be­fore the cer­e­mony, guests were treated to a di­verse range of top-notch canapés and sushi fea­tur­ing sus­tain­able seafood, and free-flow­ing Cham­pagne from Per­rier-Jouët.

New re­cip­i­ents of the pres­ti­gious Top 20 Awards for 2016 in­cluded Ta Vie, Ar­cane, Tri, Yan Toh Heen, The Ocean, Dud­dell's, Epure, Car­bone, The Con­ti­nen­tal, and Otto e Mezzo Ma­cau while Yenn Wong ac­cepted our in­au­gu­ral Restau­ra­teur of the Year award.

The awards pre­sen­ta­tion ended on a hu­mor­ous note as we un­veiled our third an­nual film pre­sen­ta­tion, Life of a Critic. Star­ring Os­car and Keanu, two five-year-old bud­ding gour­mands, the five-minute short was a tongue-in-cheek look at how we might be train­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of restau­rant re­view­ers for the Best Restau­rants Guide of the fu­ture.
