    Legendary French Menu To Be Resurrected In Hong Kong For One Night Only

    Not content to be known only for finance (especially because Shanghai is nipping at its heels in that regard), officials and creatives in Hong Kong have spent the last 10 years or so trying to boost the city's reputation as a hub for tourism, art and culture, fine wine and cuisine.

    12-Course Meal, Originally Served In Paris In 1900, To Be Revived At St George Restaurant In Hong Kong's Hullett House#

    As the Chinese economy chugs along, Hong Kong's position as the intermediary between East and West has become increasingly solid. Leveraging its special legal and political framework, along with a competitive, multicultural environment which seems to breed entrepreneurship, experimentation and innovation, Hong Kong has long been one of Asia's most exciting cities. Following its integration into the Chinese sphere after 1997, with the exception of the Asian financial crisis of that year (which, coincidentally, began within 24 hours of the handover), Hong Kong has become a crucial business hub.

    However, not content to be known only for finance -- especially because Shanghai is nipping at its heels in that regard -- officials and creatives in Hong Kong have spent the last 10 years or so trying to boost the city's reputation as a hub for tourism, art and culture, fine wine and cuisine.

    This month, the latest high-profile gourmet event will take place at Hong Kong's Hullett House -- a one-year-old "bespoke hotel and dining" destination. As first reported by Luxury Insider, the 12-course French menu, originally presented on June 26, 1900 at the Hôtel Ritz Paris by legendary chef Auguste Escoffier, will be resurrected for one night only at the Hullett House's St. George Restaurant on its 110th birthday -- June 26. Priced at HK$1,888 (US$242) per person, excluding service, the Hotel Ritz menu includes Suprème de Vollaile aux Artichauts, Pommes nouvelles and Cœurs de Romaine.

    Definitely an event not to miss for the Hong Kong-based French foodie. Now we'll have to keep an eye on Shanghai to see if its ambitious French chefs intend to respond with their own lavish menus.
