Hong Kong Tatler Best Restaurants (Hong Kong / Macau) - - Editor’s choice -

any peo­ple have fond mem­o­ries of sit­ting around the din­ner ta­ble with their fam­ily or be­ing cooked for by a loved one. Of­ten, restau­ra­teurs try to repli­cate the warmth of this col­lec­tive mem­ory by spin­ning sto­ries of passed-down recipes and in­stalling mas­sive com­mu­nal ta­bles for din­ers t o break bread—yet they usu­ally fail mis­er­ably. It feels in­au­then­tic, ex­ploita­tive and de­riv­a­tive. But once i n a while, some­thing comes along

that makes sense and feels real.

Rhoda comes from a place so deep within chef Nathan Green’s heart and his­tory that even the very stylish, of-the-times in­te­ri­ors don’t shake this feel­ing. The chef boasts a rather im­pres­sive re­sumé: af­ter grad­u­at­ing from culi­nary school, he moved up the lad­der via stints in the UK with Michael Caines, Tom Aikens and Tom Sell­ers be­fore be­ing cat­a­pulted over­seas for an op­por­tu­nity of a life­time with Ja­son Ather­ton. But the tal­ent Green has goes be­yond his il­lus­tri­ous ca­reer path.
