A new addition to our Hong Kong restaurant guide is Liberty Private Works, offering guests a stripped-down dining experience, where everything superfluous is eschewed. The simple focus here is food, and a respect for each and every ingredient. The restaurant has one seating a night, for around 14 guests. Diners watch the chefs at work, and interaction with them is strongly encouraged as they prepare the 7 or 8 course meal. The menu changes daily, based on the whims of the chefs and the seasonal availability of produce. The cuisine has a foundation in French cuisine, but is strongly influenced by the international travels of Canadian-born head chef, Makoto Ono, and his cohorts. Each night’s tasting menu, or omakase, begins with the lightest fare, proceeding to the richest, with every dish featuring one main component that’s complemented by several subcomponents. Liberty Private Works has set the bar high in the current trend for private dining. Be sure to reserve in advance to secure a seat in this highly sought after restaurant.
