The much awaited CÉPAGE by Singapore’s award-winning Les Amis Group, officially opened its doors to Hong Kong on 18th February 2009.
CÉPAGE is named after the French wine terminology meaning a “blend of” or “variety of” grapes. CÉPAGE will bring to Hong Kong the same award-winning “blend” of exquisite French-Mediterranean fare, one of the region’s finest wine lists and personalized service as has made Les Amis Singapore’s most legendary fine dining restaurant for the past 14 years.
Located on the stylish Starstreet in the heart of Wanchai, CÉPAGE is spread over three stunning levels of 7,500 sq ft in total – blending old world opulence with cutting edge design. Details are visible through beautiful handpicked European antique chandeliers, and floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap around the three-storey restaurant. Guests have access to a main dining hall on the first floor, a lounge/bar on the second and a private dining room on the third. The perfect final touch is the luscious rooftop bar providing guests the opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. The main dining hall located on the first floor can seat 42 guests but also features two private dining rooms seating 4 and 6 guests with a sleek white wine cellar. Occupying the entire third level is an exclusive private dining room perfect for up to 14 guests.
To orchestrate the menu, resident Chef Thomas Mayr who has worked his way through the ranks of numerous Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy and Germany, promises light and contemporary dishes, focusing on quality ingredients which complement the local climate and palate. New delicacies grace the menu such as Carpaccio of live Scottish diver scallop, citrus fruits and Iranian Beluga caviar (HK$540); Japanese kombu and white truffle oil (HK$250); Wild mushroom risotto, pan seared foie gras and langoustine (HK$230), Angel hair, Alaskan crab, chilli Nduja de Monte Poro with lobster oil (HK$340) and Pyrenean milk-fed lamb rack, eggplant caviar, roasted pearl onion, cherry tomato confit (HK$620).
Next is the wine. There are also two wine cellars housing red and white wine respectively boasting more than 2,100 labels. CÉPAGE’s wine programme is vibrant and interesting, emphasizing pairing with different dishes for a truly customized meal. Director of group operations Randy See is the professional sommelier, and his love for exquisite wine ensures great service and attention to every detail. The bar is cosy and welcoming. Seating merely 13 guests, it is set to be one of Hong Kong’s exclusive places to enjoy the best wines in town. Traditional ‘Chester’ style armchairs in warm hues of burgundy velvet fabric set the scene, encouraging guests to indulge in a fine vintage.
