Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will embark on a six-month renovation programme commencing in August 2020 to upgrade and refresh the dining facilities located on the top floor of the Group’s flagship hotel.
The renovation will see Pierre Gagnaire’s Michelin starred restaurant close after a successful 14-year tenure, while Man Wah will be expanded into the space currently occupied by M Bar.
Prior to the start of the renovation, a variety of special menus and celebrations have been created to pay tribute to the popular dining venues. These include a Grand Finale Degustation Menu at Pierre and a Salute to a Legend eight course tasting menu at Man Wah on 31st July, 2020. Guests are encouraged to book tables early to avoid disappointment.
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. “I am honoured to have been embraced by Hong Kong’s dynamic dining scene the past 14 years. It has been a remarkable journey and I will cherish the friends and memories that I have made,” said Chef Gagnaire.
“We are sorry to say goodbye to Pierre Gagnaire, and would like to thank him for his exceptional and inspirational cuisine over the last 14 years,” said Pierre Barthes, General Manager and Area Vice President of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong. “At the same time, we are delighted to introduce both new and refreshed dining experiences for our guests and loyal fans, and we very much look forward to unveiling these concepts in the New Year,” he added.
Details on the new 25th floor concepts will be unveiled later in the year.
