Because Hong Kong’s dining scene is ever changing, we want to give you a head’s up on all of the latest restaurants that have opened in our city this month. From SoHo steakhouses to beachside pasta, and tacos and tequila, here’s what’s new in the 852.

Once the doors open, the resto will serve dishes such as Sashimi platters and Grilled octopus, along with plenty of Whisky highballs every Monday through Saturday from 6pm until late, and we can’t wait to try out what’s sure to be the new it spot.

Coming soon to Repulse Bay, Fratelli is set to bring a taste of Italy to the southside. As an artisan pasta bar, we’re can’t wait to try what it has on offer, with delights in store that include antipasti, salads, grilled items, wine and cocktails. Promising to embraces its seaside setting, and with Head Chef Michel Degli Agosti (who has worked at our fave Amalfitana previously), we’re sure Fratelli will be an instant hit with Repulse locals and weekend visitors alike.
