Each month, the modern Japanese restaurant will offer diners a decadent spread created by executive chef Stephan Joubert and his culinary team. What’s more, guests can expect to relax and groove along to soulful tunes performed by live musicians. 

Begin your meal with appetisers like Wagyu beef tataki, spicy hamachi with crispy eggplant, and salmon tartare puffs with avocado mousse, before feasting on a chef-selected platter of sushi and sashimi. Share indulgent mains like miso-marinated New Zealand lamb rack or pan-seared sea bass, but don’t forget to leave room for a kuromitsu black sugar syrup cheesecake with candied pineapple and vanilla ice cream. Feel like indulging even more? Honjo’s jazz dinners also allow guests to opt for a two-hour-long free-flow ($398 per person) which includes beverage options like Perrier Jouet Champagne NV, Chivas highballs, draught beers, and even a live sake pouring station.

Yardley Brothers’ new launch

Local craft brewery Yardley Brothers is proud to present Hong Kong’s first-ever commercially brewed koëlschip fermented beer. This one of a kind beer has been left to sit overnight in a koëlschip, an open-topped brewing vessel, which allows exposure to yeasts and microflora from its surroundings, before being put into oak barrels to ferment for three years. The end result is a rich golden beer that has light acetic notes with juicy sweetness, and a round finish. The koëlschip spontaneous sour ($180) can be purchased on Yardley Brothers’ website, Yardley’s locations in Central and Lamma Island, as well as select retail outlets.
