Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong has announced its plans to embark on a six-month renovation programme commencing in August 2020 to upgrade and refresh its dining facilities on the 25th floor.

The renovation will see Pierre Gagnaire’s Michelin-starred restaurant close after a 14-year run, whilst Man Wah will be expanded into space currently occupied by M Bar.

Ahead of the renovation, several special menus and celebrations have been created to pay tribute to the popular dining venues, including a Grand Finale Degustation Menu at Pierre, and a Salute to a Legend eight-course tasting menu at Man Wah on 31 July.

Widely recognised as one of Hong Kong’s leading fine-dining destinations since 2006, Pierre has built a reputation for its modern French cuisine.

To pay tribute to his tenure, Chef Gagnaire and resident Chef de Cuisine Jacky Tauvry have created a series of menus called Memories of Pierre Gagnaire, available for dinner from 8 June until 30 July.

Michelin-starred Man Wah has delighted its guests with Cantonese fare since 1968. The ambience is reminiscent of an imperial court and its dishes have earned the restaurant a strong reputation in Hong Kong’s culinary scene.

Man Wah’s Executive Chinese Chef Wing-Keung Wong will highlight the restaurant’s heritage by serving an All-Time Favourites tasting menu, alongside his Signature Celebration menu until 30 July.

Details of the hotel’s new 25th floor concepts will be unveiled later in the year.
