After more than 30 years of working in high-end kitchens around the world, veteran chef Peter Find (formerly of The Ritz-Carlton) opens his own restaurant, Heimat, in Lan Kwai Fong. Heimat, which translates to 'homeland', is Find's love letter to Germany. The restaurant offers elevated German cuisine, which is certainly more exciting than bratwurst, sauerkraut, and beer. For its soft opening, Find showcases a six-course tasting menu ($1,280; +$480-$680 for wine pairing) that will transport the customers to the chef's hometown in Bersrod, to Frankfurt, Berlin, Bavaria, and the Black Forest.
The menu embraces traditional German dishes from the chef's childhood memories with fresher and more cosmopolitan strokes, paired with an Austrian and German wine list curated by award-winning sommelier Wallace Lo. Standout dishes include Frankfurter Grüne Sauce served with Brittany lobster, slow-poached egg, herbs, and potatoes (flown all the way from Germany); seabass with cabbage and goulash jus that goes perfectly well with the Fürst Bürgstadter pinot noir; and koenigsberger klops (pork dumplings in a creamy caper sauce) that can be made with OmniPork for vegetarians and complemented with a flinty Austrian sauvignon blanc from Weingut Tement. For spring, a special white asparagus menu will be available until June. After a sumptuous meal, stay for the gummy bear trolley will come by your table to serve Heimat's signature gummies made in collaboration with confectioners Bären-Treff.
