Hong Kong, need help
I'm interested in your opinion concerning the following two venues:
TBLS or Liberty Private Works?
Cannot make a choice. Should be a welcome dinner for the old friend.
I need to get to LPW but very lukewarm reviews from a few freinds have held me back. I noticed that Andy Hayler (UK blogger who specializes in Michelin) tried it and liked it so that may prompt me.
He was critical also of the three star rating of a couple of the three stars here, plus giving a positive nod to St Betty which now has Shane Osbourn (ex Pied a Terre, London). I quite liked it when I first tried it but it lost it's way quickly even dropping lunch for a weak brunch during the weekends - I wonder if the new name and new chef will save it?
Another very well respected food fanatic swears by GE At the Luxe Manor - not sure I have ever seen it mentioned on the board)
I actually have tried both but didn't take detailed notes. Both are quite similar in style with a reasonably priced tasting menu. I would give a slight edge to TBLS since I remembered its food/flavor combination as more inventive. Would have no problem going back to either one. But also don't remember them as so good that I would put them on my regular list.
Never been to GE at the Luxe Manor. My fav molecular in town is still Bo Innovation. Went back 2 or 3 months back and it was still great.
