Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will embark on a six-month renovation programme from August 2020 to upgrade and refresh the dining facilities located on its 25th floor.

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

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

Two-Michelin-starred French restaurant Pierre has been widely recognised as one of Hong Kong’s leading fine dining destinations since 2006. As Pierre Gagnaire’s pied-á-terre in the city, it is the place where gourmands go for outstanding modern French cuisine.

To pay tribute to his tenure, chef Gagnaire and resident Chef de Cuisine Jacky Tauvry have created a series of menus titled ‘Memoires of Pierre Gagnaire’, which will be available for dinner from 8 June – 30 July. A fond farewell will also take place at the Grand Finale on 31 July, where a nine-course dégustation menu will showcase Pierre’s best-loved dishes.

Michelin-starred Man Wah, often referred to as Hong Kong’s most beautiful dining space, has been serving guests with exquisite Cantonese fare since 1968. The ambience is reminiscent of an imperial court and its award-winning signature dishes have earned the restaurant an undeniable reputation.

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

Details on the new 25th floor concepts will be unveiled later in the year.
