CÉ LA VI

CÉ LA VI decided to take visual art from plate to palate and created a Savouring Art Menu with innovative finesse. Executive Chef Kun Young Pak (Phillip) has designed a menu combining Japanese, Korean, and Modern Asian cuisine and art. But the best part is he ends the dinner with a Chocolate Trio… TRIO, mamas! Hello, Chocolate Goddess. We’ll also be tempted with original art pieces for sale across all three floors; come in for dinner and leave with a new installation. CÉ LA VI, CÉ NO MORE… we are there!

fishsteria hk art month menu

Fishsteria

What would art month be without anything Italian? Fishsteria, an Italian seafood eatery, channels abstract artist, Mario Zampedroni, and futuristic artist, Furtunato Depero, in its artichoke salad app ($188) and fregola seafood pasta ($268). If you want something lighter, you can decompress in Fishsteria’s quirky ground floor lounge while you admire the surrounding graffiti art. While there, indulge in the eatery’s infamous oyster hours ($10 oysters, 5pm – 7.30pm) while sipping an artfully prepared cocktail… or two.

When: Throughout March
Where: G/F & 1/F, 111 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Le Marché

We all love pop-up shops, and Chef Philippe Orrico got it right with his art pop-up restaurant, Le Marché. Focused on Europe’s gourmet markets, this open space is great for light bites and classic drinks surrounded by lush greenery. Beyond the savoury dishes, there are creative cocktails and the option to grab curated lunch boxes for your own creative picnics. If you want to look extra cultured, you can discuss the latest trends in modern art while twirling your glass of wine that Chef Orrico pairs with the complimentary European cheese.

When: Tuesday, 21 March – Saturday, 25 March
Where: Art Central, Central Harbour Front, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Prices vary per dish. Email [email protected] to reserve a table!

Già Trattoria

Nestled in Fenwick Pier with incredible views of Victoria Harbour, Già Trattoria, dishes us up two art-inspired plates this month. In addition to Già’s rustic Italian a la carte menu, art lovers will appreciate its tiramisu ($98) prepared to resemble Giacomo Balla’s, The Speed of an Automobile, and a seafood risotto ($248)  replicating Antonio Mancini’s Almond Blossoms. If you’re an Italian Impressionist fan (as well as good dessert!) this is the place for you!

When: Throughout March
Where: 1/F, Fleet Arcade, Fenwick Pier, 1 Lung King Street, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How much: Prices vary per dish. Call 2511 8081 to make a reservation.

armani aqua - art inspired cocktails

Armani/Aqua

Armani/Aqua strikes again! This month it features an Orbetello sea bass carpaccio and it colourfully layers the dish to resemble the bright hues found in the expressive works of Katharina Grosse. After eating those vibrant flavours, you can then order the most beautiful gin cocktail you’ll see during art month. Taking inspiration from artist Hiroshige, the edible cocktail complement’s his piece, Geisha’s Encounter. It is actually topped with a delicate piece of traditional Japanese rice paper tapestry.

When: Throughout March
Where: 2/F Chater House, 8 Connaught Road, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Both the dish and cocktail are available together for $398. Call 3583 2828 to make a reservation!

Palm Court art month menu

Palm Court

Pinkies up, mamas! The Palm Court at The Langham Hotel has tapped into our memories and is serving a Blooming Afternoon Tea. Bringing a breath of floral flair this spring, Pastry Chef Matthieu Godard and his culinary team have designed a selection of five exquisite pastries decorated as a bouquet of blossoms. Not only that, but illustrator Tanya Bennett will be designing guest’s portraits to take home during their tea time. Make sure to call to reserve – specific dates and times are only available for this experience.

When: Tuesday, 21 March – Wednesday, 31 May
Where: The Langham, 8 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
How much: $348 for one person or $598 for two (+10% service charge)

Artesian Bar - unique cocktails hk

Artesian Bar

The Langham Hotel hits our list twice with extra flare this month. At its Artesian Bar, they have a specialty cocktail that is almost too delicate to sip: the Garden Globe. Sheltered within an ice sphere, this creative concoction is made with elderflower, violet flower and black currant liqueur, as well as fresh lime juice and egg white (we’re salivating just writing that!). A colourful range of edible flowers sit pretty to top this picturesque beverage. At $130, you can enjoy this drink from now until Sunday, 30 April.

When: Now – Sunday, 30 April
Where: The Langham, 8 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
How much: $130 per cocktail.

Street Food Central

Above all else, make sure you leave room in your belly this month for Street Food Central located on Victoria Harbour. A big hit from previous years, it will feature the city’s most popular food trends — that’s right, we’re talking churros and poke bowls! Plus, this year, our favourite cocktail bitter, Fernet Hunter, will also create its own bar serving signature cocktails. It’s the epitome of Art Month – you can do all this while swaying away to some sweet jazz.

When: Tuesday, 21 March – Saturday, 25 March
Where: Art Central, Central Harbour Front, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Prices vary per dish. Grab your tickets here.
