2014 Michelin guide in a nutshell


No matter how you feel about the Michelin Guide, especially about the one in Hong Kong – there’s no denying that it has placed our city dining on the gastronomic map. The listing for the Michelin Guide Hong Kong and Macau 2014 was announced on Thursday and here are some highlights.

Bo Innovation and Sushi Shikon (formerly Sushi Yoshitake), in the Mercer Hotel, Sheung Wan gained its third Michelin star, while L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Italian restaurant 8 ½ Otto E Mezzo Bombana, have held on to their sparkly status.


French cuisine continues to lead the pack with Pierre at the Mandarin Oriental being bumped back up to a two-star while Amber in the Landmark Oriental keeps its two-star status. Meanwhile, the Four Season’s three-star mainstay Caprice only achieves two stars this year. The Langham’s T’ang Court regains its second star and Summer Palace at the Island Shangri-La keeps the two-star accolade for the third time.


In the one star category – Harbourfront Landmark Shanghainese restaurant Yu Lei achieves one star honours for the second year running. Mandarin Grill & Bar, the Mandarin Orientals’ namesake, also received one star for the fifth consecutive year. The Square at Two Exchange Square keeps up appearances, keeping its one star, while Man Wah at the Mandarin and Restaurant Petrus at the Shangri-La all gain a one star recognition this year.
