Super-luxe SKY 21




A New Landmark in Macau Tourism


Towering over a spectacular harbour view, the MOP $20 million super-luxury SKY 21 Bar and Restaurant is the new tourist landmark in the heart of the Macau enclave.


The 20,000 square feet, multi-media complex features SKY 21, the Pan-Asian dining area; SKY B, the ultra-modern lounge; SKY Life, the clubbing area and SKY Luxe, the luxury shopping counter. All located on two floors and a roof top deck. Sleek, smart, savvy and steeped in understated luxuriousness, SKY 21 is the ultimate have-it-all entertainment experience mixing the best in music with first-rate Pan-Asian and Continental cuisine, super-luxe shopping and out-of-this-world cityscape.


Floating like an oasis atop a sky-high landmark in a wild and gutsy city that is Macau, SKY 21 is a place where no desires are judged, no attitudes are tamed, and no tastes are ignored. Be you in the mood to mingle, splurge, dance, and party or simply to chill under the stars, at SKY 21, the sky’s the limit.


SKY 21 is equipped with state-of-the-art acoustics and visual enhancements for live musical performances, an ultra-modern lounge, an out-door balcony area for alfresco dining, and rooftop terrace offering superb view of Macau. SKY 21 also offers an exclusive environment for VIP dining and bar experience.


The buzz surrounding SKY 21 began in late last decade when SKY 21’s Managing Director Mr. Saree Xongmixay found in his city the lack of a sophisticated club that is a must-see destination for leisure and business travellers alike. Macau required a highly designed chic cityscape sought out by the more demanding global sophisticated travellers, SKY 21 fills that space.


“We want to build an entertainment and fine dining complex outside of the casinos and hotels environment that is up-scale, sophisticated and with a spectacular harbour and fireworks view, a chic lifestyle scene that is on par with the most glamorous cities of the world,” said Mr. Saree Xongmixay, Managing Director.


“Whether you're looking for an affordable yet chic harbor view restaurant to take your date, a warm, inviting lounge to play and chat with your friends, or an unpretentious happy hour spot, SKY 21 has something for every visitor, local and foreign, he added.


SKY 21 promises a powerful mix of entertainment elements that could only be found in this new Mecca of entertainment, fine dinner and clubbing.


To celebrate the opening, SKY 21 kicks off with a line up of jazz, party and DJ entertainment.

Culinary Excellence The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong


Having opened for just eight months, the Chinese restaurant Tin Lung Heen and the Italian restaurant Tosca at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong are proud to be recognized by one of the most well-regarded restaurant guides in the world – the MICHELIN Guide.

In the MICHELIN guide Hong Kong Macau 2012, Tin Lung Heen was awarded one Michelin star, one of the five new Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong to receive this prestigious honor. Tosca was recommended in the guide receiving three "forks and spoons", which in itself is a tremendous accolade in its first year of operations.

Pierre Perruset, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong commented, "I am delighted that Tin Lung Heen has garnered the one-star rating, an exceptional achievement in such a short period of time. I am equally delighted that Tosca has also been recognized and listed in the prestigious Michelin guide. This is the concerted efforts of all the ladies and gentlemen in the hotel and the restaurants, dedicated in crafting a distinctive and exceptional dining experience for the guests."

Chef Paul Lau, the Chef de Cuisine at Tin Lung Heen expressed, "My cooking philosophy is simple. The presentation can be innovative, but you always have to respect the traditional cooking methods and techniques. Ultimately, what I want to see are the smiling faces of the diners and I have to ensure every diner is able to taste and enjoy the food to its fullest."

Chef Lau is highly regarded as one of the top Cantonese chefs in Hong Kong. He is an expert in Chinese culinary arts with over 34 years of experience in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guangzhou, as well as in Dubai and the UK.

Located on the 102/F, Tin Lung Heen presents refined authentic Cantonese cuisine at its best in town. It is a popular venue for Hong Kong's traditional Dim Sum complemented with a premium variety of tea. On the same floor, Tosca offers Southern Italian cuisine in a dramatically stylish backdrop. The open kitchen design and high ceiling complete the one-of-a-kind dining experience.

Brasserie de L


Affordable northern French menu headlined by iconic ‘moules frites’
 
Hong Kong’s first authentic northern French brasserie has opened on Arbuthnot Road, Central. Brasserie de L’ile is styled after the region’s casual, affordable traditional brasseries – complete with al fresco street-side terrace for watching the world go by.
 
It specialises in the rich culinary heritage of northern France, headlined by the region’s beloved specialty ‘moules frites’ – mussels and French fries.
 
‘Moules frites’ is quintessential bistro food at its best. Like fish and chips in England and burgers and fries or hot dogs in the United States, it is an iconic comfort food pairing beloved from northern France through neighbouring Belgium to the Netherlands.
 
Families and groups traditionally share bowls of fries and pots of mussels, using empty shells to crack them open – and Brasserie de L’ile serves such large portions (800g) with “all you can eat” homemade fries at HK$258. Starter portions (400g) without fries are also served at HK$138.
 
There are many ways to serve the mussels, but the most classic is Mariniere – in a broth of white wine, onion, celery, thyme, laurel and butter.
 
Also on the menu are two variations from northern France – Normandie, with cider rather than wine, flavoured with tarragon, onion and apple; and Alsacienne, with leek, onion and bacon enriched with cream. More exotic modern variations include Ibérique, incorporating chorizo, saffron, garlic and onion; Roquefort, with the legendary blue cheese in cream sauce; Côte d’Azur, with pastis and cream with parsley and fennel; and Thai, in a green curry coconut milk sauce with eggplant and onion.
 
Platters of assorted cold cuts (pork rillettes, Bayonne ham, sausage and terrine) and cheese, including farmhouse specialties rarely found in Hong Kong, are traditional accompaniments to a glass of wine, at HK$168.
 
Main courses also focus on the rich seasonal produce of France – from beef tartare with fries (HK$228) and rib-eye steak with brandy and black pepper sauce and fries (HK$228) to duck leg confit with orange sauce and hash browns (HK$188) and breaded chicken escalope and mushroom sauce with mashed potatoes (HK$148).
 
Completing the culinary tour of French cooking are desserts (HK$68) of traditional tarte tatin with cream, crème brûlée, profiterolles with hot chocolate sauce and home-style bread pudding with jam and fruit.
 
For Christmas, celebrated on the evening of December 24th as per the tradition, Brasserie de L’ile offers a festive spread that includes pan-fried foie gras with caramelised apple and calvados, roasted turkey with chestnuts, cranberry and orange sauce and for desert a bread pudding with raisins and prunes and brandy custard sauce. The menu also includes a glass of Premiere Bulle Sparkling Wine (HK$550).
 
At the helm of Brasserie de L’ile is Bruno Gautier, a veteran chef from Brittany who grew up with the cuisine inspiring its menu.
 
Previously running his own farmhouse kitchen restaurant, he established exceptional seafood and artisan sources for the restaurant’s imported produce – including delicate bouchots mussels from the Bay of Mont Saint-Michel, and local producers of cheese, duck confit, foie gras, chocolate, mustard, gherkins, and even prized Sel de Guérande salt.
 
Restaurant manager Elliot Luckly added: “Our concept is following the dictionary definition of brasserie, as an unpretentious restaurant or tavern serving drinks with simple and hearty food.
 
“In Hong Kong, French food is generally considered formal and uptight, high class, very expensive, takes hours, and reserved for special occasions.
 
“But French brasserie cuisine is casual and affordable. It fits the lifestyle of Hong Kong people because it's unpretentious, affordable, and flexible with relatively quick service.
 
“Customers can drop by for drinks only, or for a quick bite, or for afternoon snacks and coffee reading books and magazines or working on laptops (enjoying free wifi), or prolonged dinners mingling with friends.”
 
The name Brasserie de L’ile is a play on words, reminiscent not only of the French northern industrial metropolis of Lille, which is especially famous for moules frites, but also the restaurant’s location on Hong Kong Island.

Lifestyle Diva Bonnie Gokson


Lifestyle Diva Bonnie Gokson Launches ‘Small is Beautiful’…charming Café-Bar ‘c’est la B’
 
Hong Kong lifestyle diva Bonnie Gokson is launching a chain of “charming” neighbourhood café-bars branded c'est la B.
 
The flagship “hole-in-the-wall” venue held a Grand Opening event on November 24 at 110-114 Tung Lo Wan Road, Tai Hang – in a quaint street of shops conveniently close to luxury apartments above Causeway Bay along Tai Hang Road. Business will commence starting Monday November 28 and opens from 11:30am to midnight on a daily basis.
 
It is the first of a new café-bar brand hinting at the celebrity style icon’s name with a light-hearted reference to the French phrase for “c’est la vie” (“such is life”).
 
Seating only 30, c'est la B is deliberately conceived to reflect the same stylish yet whimsical concept as its creator – the style icon founder of fashionable penthouse restaurant SEVVA and more recently Ms B's CAKERY.
 
Brightly-coloured butterfly designs flutter like precious gems against a backdrop of dark charcoal interiors and black and white-striped floors to provoke a “feeling and humour and fun”. Another amusing signature is mismatched crockery.
 
“It’s all about fun and style, humour and life, colour and energy,” says Ms Gokson.
 
In Ms Gokson’s inimitable style, the menu combining more than 30 signature desserts and cakes with savoury pot pies, salads and baguettes can be enjoyed over special teas and coffees, a restorative cocktail or refreshing glass of wine or champagne.
 
“It’s a charming small café-bar for people to have a nice chill-out time enjoying our delectable desserts and hearty pies, or takeaways for their parties at home,” she says.
 
Among specialties are smaller “taster” sizes of well-known cakes from Ms B’s CAKERY, which opened earlier this year in Gough Street, Central.
 
Sweets include decadent, chocolate Heaven Can Wait; Panna Cotta & Fairy Dust Crunch of French vanilla panna cotta with biscotti 'dusts' and caramel crunch; and Moonstruck’d, a mango mousse with mango and pomelo chunks and chiffon that is “so yummy we had to put it in a cup”.
 
A new signature carrot cheesecake with a berry glaze designed as a takeaway for parties, is named “Blessing in Disguise” (a reference to c’est la B’s grand opening date which falls on the American Thanksgiving holiday) and weighs in at a hefty 1,200g, priced at HK$960.
 
Along with sugarless desserts, a selection of 'potted gems' includes Fatal Attraction of espresso jelly & cappuccino panna cotta, and Apple Granola Crumble, with Cheddar cheese.
 
The flagship’s venue was deliberately chosen for its “character and charm”. “It has a quaint, neighborhood charm about it,” added Ms Gokson.
 
The district is also renowned as a ‘Millionaire’s Mile’ of luxury, high-rise apartments. As she noted: “I have many friends living over that area and they are so happy a neighbourhood café-bar is opening.”
