Chinesology will take a contemporary look at the depth and complexity of Chinese cuisine. Chef Saito Chau, who has over 24 years of Chinese experience and has worked at restaurants such as Hutong, John Anthony, and the Queen, is in charge of the initiative.

The wide location, which has a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour and boasts planted oriental gardens and rich, colorful accents, is reminiscent of the Garden of Eden, and the meals on offer reflect this sumptuous complexity.

Local three-yellow chicken is used in the Oolong Tea Smoked Chicken, which is air-dried for two nights before being tea-smoked for gently sweet overtones of Osmanthus and Oolong. Preserved Plum Mousse, Cherry Dressing is another inventive delicacy, consisting of plum mousse spheres ringed by hawthorn jelly and influenced by traditional Northern Chinese candied hawthorn.

At Clarence, Chef Olivier Elzer of the two-Michelin-starred L’Envol has opened a one-of-a-kind Asian-inspired French restaurant in Central’s H Code, which will be run by his protégé chef Simon So. Clarence will be divided into four distinct zones, with a sommelier, a raw and wine bar, a lounge, and a main dining space with an open kitchen.

To go along with his new restaurant, Olivier has developed and copyrighted a “Yakifrenchy” idea, which uses traditional Asian cooking methods to prepare classic French cuisine. Succulent bites of Challans duck confit, frogs’ legs pastis, and Burgundy snails are skewered and grilled over a robatayaki. The raw fish and wine bar serves light but elegant plates of premium seafood, such as Arctic char gravlax with bottarga muggine (a typical dried mullet roe), and the vast wine list reflects Olivier’s well-known passion for champagne and wine.

While petit fours are sometimes an afterthought at restaurants, Chef Antimo’s have been meticulously considered, providing polished, smaller versions of famous Italian pastries and sweets.The pistachio gelato, which is created a la minute for each table and is a rich, decadent, and creamy treat, also deserves praise.
