Hidden on the second floor of Tai Kwun’s JC Contemporary Building, Old Bailey is an authentic home for Jiangnan food and tradition, carefully encased in a Herzog de Meuron space that’s been brought to fruition with the assistance of local talents Adonian Chan (Trilingua), Mina Park (Sook) and Nana Chan (Teakha).
In the restaurant, Head Chef Wong Gwan Man, brings to present day Hong Kong, fare that is delicately balanced and preservative free. So too, an exquisite Shanghainese dim sum programme, including not one, but three takes on the beloved Xiaolongbao. The menu paints a tale of place and time, but so too of produce and the people who deliver beautiful things to the kitchen.
With an outdoor terrace overlooking Tai Kwun, Central, SoHo and the Mid Levels, Old Bailey offers unseen views of Hong Kong. One best enjoyed with a drink from the bar.
