Mandarin Grill + Bar in Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong serves beautifully plated dishes, with every presentation detail carefully crafted. Dining here is a top-notch experience that starts immediately as your waiter brings a trolley offering six varieties of champagne, and later a trolley of six olive oil selections, to pair with the homemade bread. The thoughtful presentation extends through all of the dishes on the menu, from the cocktails to the desserts. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant’s signature salad, the flower pot, is an entirely edible blossoming bouquet. Served in a terra cotta pot, organic greens and vegetables are planted in a tasty “soil.” The beef calotte arrived plated inside a mock Mandarin Grill + Bar cookbook. The food and presentation here seamlessly marry sophistication and whimsy.
