L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon Hong Kong

Tastebuds are in for a roller coaster ride at each of Joel Robuchon's restaurants around the world and this outpost in Hong Kong doesn't disappoint, serving delectable French food, tapas-style, to the in-crowd at one of the sexiest dining spots in town.

L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon's dramatic red and black interior alone is a feast for the eyes. And while foodies have mumbled that Hong Kong's L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon doesn't rank equal with Robuchon's more traditional restaurant in Macau, L'Atelier's food still impresses.

Executive chef Michel del Burgo plays skillfully with seasonal ingredients and traditional French cooking techniques, with excellent concoctions such as la Cailleí, a dish of free range quail with foie gras, served with Robuchon's famous velvety mashed potatoes. Another classic is the sea urchin in a lobster jelly topped with cauliflower cream. 

For a more leisurely fine-dining experience, head to the neighboring Le Jardin with its outdoor garden terrace, or grab a quick pick-me-up at the cafe Le Salon de The.
