ABOVE & BEYOND
Above & Beyond breaks the general adage that restaurants with a great view tend not to be very good at anything else. Located at the top floor of Hotel Icon, the perch ensures that guests get a panoramic spread of city lights during dinner time at the restaurant. The dining space may be elongated and narrow, but the establishment lets their menu prove their worthiness as one of Hong Kong’s finest Chinese restaurants. Cantonese dishes fare well with modern interpretation, with novelty ingredients adding a delightful surprise. Crispy five-spiced sliced Angus beef brisket is served warm as an appetiser; the thin but tender brisket packs a punch in flavour but is not overpowered with spices. The fine-dining restaurant is popular for business gatherings and dim sum lunch, but it also serves an afternoon set featuring treats inspired by international cuisines. The wine list is well-constructed with abundant wine by-the-glass selections. Come for an early dinner, which is the best time to catch both the sunset and the city’s skyline with lined with lights.
