“Hong Kong is a great city with many great restaurants and bar concepts. I lived in New York where I opened several restaurants and I can say Hong Kong is comparable in the way that people love food and always eat out. Restaurants are part of the social culture which is challenging but is also very exciting for a chef,” Chef Alain noted. “I am inspired by the hotel everyday and keen on creating stunning moments for our guests with my culinary masterpieces.”
