T.Dining by Hong Kong Tatler - - The New Gastronomy -

Bibo is part of Le Comp­toir group, the so­phis­ti­cates be­hind open­ings such as The Ocean, Umi, and Tri. This She­ung Wan venue was one of its first in their port­fo­lio of restau­rants to open in Hong Kong, and it car­ries all the sig­na­ture char­ac­ter­is­tics of the group’s even­tual fol­low-ups, where money seems to be no ob­ject. The space, which looks out onto Cat Street and Ladder Street, is beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated (in this case with some pretty price­less and im­pres­sive mod­ern art pieces, from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Kaws); it’s buzzy; and it’s ex­pen­sive. In con­trast to its sur­round­ings, Bibo of­fers fairly clas­sic French cui­sine, with an em­pha­sis on pre­mium in­gre­di­ents such as Hokkaido scal­lop, Brit­tany blue lob­ster or Miyazaki wagyu beef, pre­sented in nu­mer­ous art­ful ways. Lo­cated along his­toric Hol­ly­wood Road, just di­ag­o­nally across the street from tourist mag­net Man Mo Tem­ple, Bibo is a re­li­able spot al­ways for a quick drink be­fore din­ner; a no-fuss yet re­li­able business lunch; or even Sun­day brunch with free-flow cham­pagne.
