Hong Kong Restaurants: La Marmite

A La Marmite table setting.

A new Parisian-styled bistro in Hong Kong is shining light on an otherwise scantly lit corner of Soho. Contemporary and inviting, La Marmite (46 Staunton St., Central; 852/2803-7808) is the latest offering by the Aqua group, famed more for the decor of their restaurants than the service. But La Marmite’s service to date, combined with a menu of wallet-friendly dishes with their roots in unpretentious French classics, gives hope to savvy diners. Be sure to try the signature foie gras crème brĂ»lĂ©e and the whiting in caramelized caper butter, washed down with a selection from the restaurant’s short but well-rounded wine list. –Nicholas Walton
