The table settings are simple yet elegant at Amber inside The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong — all the better to showcase the delightfully colorful, detailed and creative food presentations. The tables at Amber are cloaked in soft white tablecloths and set with simple Bernadaud white china, Riedel glassware and high-quality cutlery. When your food comes out at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant, you’ll marvel at the variety of china pieces and serving dishes used. For instance, the chef’s signature Hokkaido sea urchin is served in a sea urchin shell, over a crystal glass filled with ice. The foie gras lollipops are served standing up in a rectangular wooden block, along with accompanying ham croquettes, delicately placed inside a china egg dish, meant to be taken as shots.
