A Foodie Fling

Is the love of your life starting to get a bit stale? Do you find that you no longer have the same intense cravings for it that you used to? Is the action itself starting to feel a bit . . . perfunctory? Sounds like you could use a little fling. A Foodie Fling! (What did you think we were talking about?) April and May are chock full of new chefs, new restaurants and new menus that will add plenty of spice back into your foodie life, and girl, you can get it at any time of day!

You’ve had dinner with Joel Robuchon, but have you stayed over for breakfast? Starting April 16, L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon (The Landmark, Central, 2166 9000) will be serving breakfast at La Table, Monday through Saturday. The most important meal of the day just got a little bit sexier.

A little afternoon delight? Starting today, Nobu (InterContinental Hotel, TST, 2313 2323) will be serving lunch. Choose from Bento Boxes and Sushi Lunches, or if want to go for a longer mid-day session, order the special “Lunch Omakase,” the seven-course chef’s tasting menu. Only have time for a quickie? Do it discreetly at The Box (IFC Mall, Central, 2234 7738), Harlan G’s newest hotspot, where you can enjoy a delicious Italian buffet of antipasti, salads and most importantly decadent desserts.

When the sun goes down, things really heat up. Amber (Landmark Mandarin, Central, 2132 0188) will showcase three master chefs from Holland to vie for your heart and your tummy. Michelin star chef Robert Kranenborg of Le Cirque will be spicing things up April 23-25. Bachelor number two, Hans Snijders from Michelin star restaurant Chateau Neercanne in Maastricht, will have command of the kitchen from April 27 through May 1. And for the tastiest menage a trois in Hong Kong, Robert Kranenborg, Hans Snijders, and Amber’s resident Dutch chef Richard Ekkebus will come together to create a 12-course masterpiece that will be more pleasure than your palate can handle. So you’ve tasted Holland’s treats, but are you ready for a rendezvous in Paris? Chef Alain Ducasse will be in-residence April 16 and 17 at his restaurant Spoon (InterContinental Hotel, TST, 2313 2256) to bring you “April in Paris,” two delectable evenings dedicated to his vision of Parisian cuisine.  To keep the affair going, one lucky diner will win a trip for two to Paris including lunch and dinner at Monsieur Ducasse’s restaurants. Ooh la la!  Looking for a new dining partner? Look no further than the Kee Club’s (Central, 2810 9000) “One Table” dining experience. For one night only, on April 18, Chef GianLuigi Bonelli will prepare a five-course meal for a maximum of 30 guests, who will all dine at one communal table. It’s anyone’s guess who you’ll be spending the night with. Dining with strangers never sounded so good.

Midnight Snack
A nightcap will really put you in the mood.  This month, world renowned mixologist Mark Ward has descended upon Opia (JIA Hotel, Causeway Bay, 3196 9100) with a set of sexy signature drinks including Opia’s own Ice Balls: Scotch complimented by apple and lemongrass and fine cognac with raspberry and chocolate. It’s a cool end to a hot night.

Too much to choose from? Can’t make a commitment? Don’t worry . . . its only a fling.
