After a 14-year run at the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, legendary French chef Pierre Gagnaire’s two-Michelin-starred Pierre restaurant will be saying au revoir come August when the hotel closes the dining facilities on its 25th floor for a six-month renovation. It will make way for an as-yet-to-be-revealed concept, while neighboring Cantonese dining room Man Wah will be refreshed and expanded into the space currently occupied by M Bar.

Hong Kong gourmands keen for one last meal at Pierre can enjoy its innovative cuisine through a series of five-, seven-, and nine-course dinner menus aptly dubbed Memoires of Pierre Gagnaire. Conceived by Gagnaire and resident chef de cuisine Jacky Tauvry, the dishes include such offerings as red mullet rolled in Bigorre lard with shellfish marinière; duck foie gras glazed with signature Eriang sauce and accompanied by abalone and beetroot; and hake infused with plankton and kombu jelly served with osetra caviar.

Priced from HKD 1,688, the tasting menus will be available from June 8 until July 30, with a Grand Finale Degustation Menu being served on July 31, Pierre’s last night of operation. We can’t think of a better way to bid adieu to this beloved establishment.
