ArcaneBefore Shane Osborn came to Hong Kong, he was the first Australian chef to have earned one and then two Michelin stars at London's Pied à Terre. At his elegant restaurant Arcane, the focus is on modern European fusion cuisine with ingredients sourced from Japan, France, and the U.K. At a time when many other Hong Kong restaurants are focused on kitsch or over-the-top style, Arcane is refreshingly dignified and puts the food at center stage. Main courses include a panfried John Dory with baby squid, fennel purée, zucchini, and bouillabaisse sauce, and a sautéed potato gnocchi topped with fresh morels, pine nuts, truffle cream, and wild garlic leaves. The Pyrenean milk-fed lamb with eggplant purée, chickpeas, chorizo, choi sum, and rosemary jus is another mouthwatering option. Dining here isn’t cheap, but the service is excellent and the food is out of this world.
