Helmed by Italian star chef and the “King of White Truffles”, Umberto Bombana, 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Hong Kong continues to hold its prestigious standing as the first and only three-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant outside of Italy, awarded consecutive stars since 2012. Sitting at the junction of Italian lifestyle, art and food, the long-time institution is a mainstay of the city’s fine dining scene, sought-after by locals and visitors alike. Meanwhile, sister restaurant 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Macau retains its Michelin star this year, while 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA Shanghai keeps its two-star standing for the 6th year running.
Born in Monte-Carlo and opened in Hong Kong in 2015, Beefbar Hong Kong is recognised this year with one Michelin star, a tribute to the pioneering vision of Chef Andrea Spagoni and the team’s ongoing dedication to delivering one of the finest beef cuisines experiences in town. Meticulously sourcing only the best cuts of beef from around the world, Beefbar offers a refined evening out for meat-lovers, complemented by a 500-strong wine list curated by a team of expert sommeliers.
Seamlessly blending cross-cultural influences, Lai Sun Dining’s French-Japanese fine dining restaurants, ZEST by Konishi and Takumi by Daisuke Mori each take home a coveted Michelin star in 2022. Having picked up its inaugural star less than one year after opening in 2020, ZEST by Konishi sees Head Chef Mitsuru Konishi weaving a symphony of textures and flavours rooted in exquisite Japanese ingredients and classical techniques; while over at Takumi by Daisuke Mori, the restaurant’s eponymous chef takes diners on a flight of imagination showcasing the best seasonal produce, inspired by his personal background and culinary journey.
As the long-time arbiter for gastronomic excellence around the globe, the Michelin Guide is regarded as one of the highest honours awarded in the restaurant world—the ultimate hallmark of a restaurant and chef’s passion and innovation. With 9 Michelin stars under its umbrella, Lai Sun Dining looks forward to ushering in the new year with a renewed commitment to bringing guests first-rate hospitality and transportive, unforgettable culinary experiences.
