Hong Kong’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel is set to close its Michelin-starred restaurants.
Hong Kong’s Mandarin Oriental has announced that it will be closing both Pierre and Man Wah restaurants this summer.
The hotel is beginning a six-month renovation programme from August to refresh the dining facilities on the top floor of the hotel. The renovation will see Pierre close for good, while Man Wah will be expanded into the space currently occupied by M Bar.
Pierre Gagnaire’s eponymous Michelin-starred restaurant has enjoyed a 14-year tenure on the 25th floor of the city hotel, while Cantonese specialist Man Wah, also Michelin-starred, has been in operation since 1968.
To pay tribute to Pierre, chef Gagnaire and resident chef de cuisine Jacky Tauvry will be serving a series of Memoires of Pierre Gagnaire menus from June 8 to July 30. They will include a five-course, seven-course and nine-course dinner menu (HK$1,688, HK$1,988 and HK$2,388).
There will also be a special Wine Not tasting menu every Saturday throughout June and July with a three- or five-course menu (HK$888, HK$1,288) paired with wines selected by the resident sommelier.
Man Wah’s executive chef, Wing-Keung Wong, will be serving an All Time Favourites tasting menu and a Signature Celebration menu from June 15 to July 30. A five-course set lunch menu (HK$888) and an eight-course set dinner menu (HK$1,688) will highlight chef Wong’s signature dishes.
M Bar will also be waving goodbye to Hong Kong with a Lights Out at M Bar event from June 15 to July 30. It includes canapes, a glass of Krug champagne and a live DJ for HK$688 per person.
Further details of the new 25th floor dining spaces will be released later this year.
