ith the holiday season drawing nearer, this month‚Äôs new restaurant openings are giving us plenty of reason to get the celebrations started early thanks to some promising new additions to Hong Kong‚Äôs dining landscape, including some big names set to debut their first solo ventures or sophomore concepts in Hong Kong. From the opening of Mandarin Oriental‚Äôs ex-Executive Chef Uwe Opocensky‚Äòs eponymous restaurant to a fast-casual deli from none other than British TV star Jamie Oliver, October is loaded with star power in the F&B scene. Scroll down to see the 10 new restaurants that should be on your radar this month.
After shocking local gourmands by leaving the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong last year to flip burgers at Beef & Liberty, lauded chef Uwe Opocensky is making another bold move: opening a solo venture ‚Äî an eponymous restaurant, in fact ‚Äî this month. Simply named Uwe, the cosy venue is likely to be the closest you‚Äôll get to dining in the home of the seasoned, German-born chef, with everything meant to be a pure expression of Opocensky‚Äôs cooking philosophy, from the unique tableware to the meticulously plated dishes and the warm hospitality.
3-course lunch priced at HK$788 per person and the 6-course dinner priced at HK$1,228 per person (excluding wine pairing); make reservations here.

MEATS is being billed as a ‚Äúmeat bar‚Äù focusing on house-smoking, rotisserie and charcoal-grilling as the cooking methods of choice.¬† Supplemented by a range of delicious starters (think black sesame honey-glazed drumsticks and bone marrow with anchovy butter), craft cocktails and the warm, easy-going hospitality that Pirata Group is known for, we have a feeling MEATS is set to be another winning concept from the team behind some of our favourite Hong Kong venues.
