21 Dec Gaddi’s at The Peninsula Hong Kong Earns Its First Michelin Star
Hailed as one of Asia’s most revered dining destinations since opening its doors in 1928, The Peninsula Hong Kong received a double seal of approval from the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020. World-renowned French fine-dining institution Gaddi’s was awarded one Michelin star, and refined Cantonese restaurant Spring Moon garnered a coveted Michelin star for the fourth consecutive year.
Acclaimed by guests and gastronomes the world over since opening in 1953, Gaddi’s is consistently commended as one of the city’s most sophisticated French fine-dining restaurants. Leading Gaddi’s golden culinary trio is Chef Albin Gobil, who transports guests on captivating epicurean adventures brimming with creativity and refinement. Chef Gobil describes his cooking style as “modern classic” with a deceptively simple and elegant approach to his gastronomic art. Striving to combine the best of past and present, Restaurant Manager Michele Drusacchi ensures that Gaddi’s sumptuous interiors and superlative cuisines are matched by impeccable service. Chief Sommelier Bojan Radulovic is a passionate storyteller who enriches each dining experience with expert anecdotes about more than 700 labels from the world’s leading vineyards on the extensive wine list.
An enduring bastion of the Hong Kong dining scene, Spring Moon has been widely heralded for its classic yet innovative take on Cantonese fine dining and dim sum since 1986. New Chinese Cuisine Executive Chef Lam Yuk Ming brings a wealth of experience and creativity to the Spring Moon kitchen, which – under the guidance of The Peninsula Group Executive Chef Florian Trento – has elevated Cantonese cuisine to new heights in a city famed for its passion of this culinary genre. An admired gourmet maestro, Lam’s two-decade-long career has seen him helm the kitchens at iconic Chinese restaurants. He promises diners a delicate balance of classic Cantonese cooking techniques and contemporary presentations, with each artistically crafted dish marrying striking aesthetics with a nuanced layering of seasonal tastes and textures.
Mr Joseph Chong, Area Vice President and Managing Director, The Peninsula Hong Kong and The Peninsula Shanghai, said: “We are proud and delighted that Gaddi’s has been awarded the star by the Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2020, with Spring Moon receiving this accolade for the fourth year running. We would like to thank Michelin for the honour it has bestowed on our two restaurants. These highly prized Michelin stars are a testament to the boundless creativity and relentless pursuit of excellence displayed by Chef Albin, Chef Lam and their talented culinary teams.”
