As always with new venues, be sure to call ahead to make sure there are no changes to opening dates and times.

The best new restaurant openings in Hong Kong

Restaurants, Steakhouse

It’s out with the old and in with the new at L Place as the team behind Shore reopens this fourth-floor space as Hunter – a younger model of its beloved steakhouse. In this cool and contemporary venue, you’ll find quality beef, as well as lesser-found meats such as bison and wild boar. While you’re here, be sure to check out Hunter’s terraced sister cocktail bar, The Chase, on the floor below. 

Restaurants, Japanese

A Happy Pancake

Feeding into this city’s hunger for cloudlike pancakes, this Japanese chain opens its first overseas store at Lee Garden Three. The soufflé pancakes here are made with all-natural ingredients and are cooked fresh to order. We recommend the black tea pancake with homemade granola, a well as the matcha flavoured version with butter and syrup. Opens mid-Sep.

Restaurants, Greek

Artemis & Apollo

This Greek taverna comes from the same folks who brought us Ho Lee Fook, Belon and New Punjab Club. Styled as a casual neighbourhood hangout, Artemis & Apollo serves classic Greek dishes, from mezzes, such as taramasalata, to grilled meat souvlaki. Oh, and don’t forget to start your meal with a round of ouzo. Opens late Sep.
