New Restaurants

Sushi Saito

Get ready, there’s a new sushi restaurant coming to town, and this one’s kind of a big deal. With three Michelin stars in Tokyo, and currently placed at number 26 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List, Sushi Saito is set to open next month in the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. At the helm of the restaurant is Chef Takashi Saito, who is known for his precise attention to detail, and ability to create expert sushi that balances temperature, texture and flavour. For those who worry that the Hong Kong export may not match up to the original, we’ve been assured that from the soy sauce, to the rice, and even Chef Saito’s signature mild red vinegar, the ingredients will be identical to what is served in Tokyo!

Lovers of local cuisine who also crave a pasta fix every now and again, this one’s for you. Known for its New York-Italian fare, Linguini Fini is bringing a revamped new menu, inspired by delights from the 852. Pasta favourites have been given a makeover, with the likes of Char Siu Carbonara ($159) and Shrimp and Scallop Arrabbiata ($179) gracing the menu and celebrating iconic Chinese dishes and dried ingredients, while maintaining the comforting nostalgia of Italian home cooking. We can’t wait to try out the Typhoon Shelter Crab Linguini ($179), made with fresh crab, black bean, pickled chili and a garlic-scallion riff on a classic gremolata and linguini, it’s the perfect marriage of East and West.
