www.mercedes-benz.com/hk It’s an un­usual con­cept—a restau­rant in a Mercedes-Benz show­room.

But some­how Mercedes Me works, par­tic­u­larly in its new lo­ca­tion, a few doors down Queen’s Road Cen­tral from its pre­vi­ous set­ting. It’s brighter and more open here – just make sure to head up­stairs where din­ers are less ex­posed and large ‘M’ mo­tifs em­bla­zoned on con­crete walls achieve a con­tem­po­rary cool. Here, too, a warm wel­come awaits from staff knowl­edge­able of both food and wine of­fer­ings. The ad­vice is to choose three to four small plates and one large if shar­ing, leav­ing room for dessert. Flavours and tex­tures have been care­fully con­sid­ered through­out and dishes take in­spi­ra­tion from around the world, rang­ing from Ger­many, in the spirit of the brand (there’s a good se­lec­tion of Ger­man wine, too), to Asia, and all are well-ex­e­cuted, just of­ten not served at op­ti­mal tem­per­a­tures – dis­ap­point­ing con­sid­er­ing the prox­im­ity of the open kitchen.
