French restaurants?

Been dining here for years. Great wine list. Nice cigar divan upstairs (out of the way of diners) for smokers.

12 for a 50th Birthday in May

Panevino has a great 'chef's table' for a group of 12 or so. It's well-positioned in the dining room with great sight lines. The bar is delightful for pre-meal gathering and the Italian menu is fantastic. I'm hosting a group there next month after a terrific meal with my wife recently. Strongly recommended.

I made this recipe for the Super Bowl this morning (Hong Kong time) with lemon instead of lime. Found Herdez serranos in Central. Fantastic! Scallions work well. No need for garlic. The 'zing' comes from the lemon and serranos - just enough. Not overwhelming. Easy as can be. Come on, fellas, let's show the ladies we can dance in the kitchen too!

Western restaurant in Hong Kong for Chinese New Year's Eve (Feb. 13)

We can't seem to find a prix fix dinner at a Western restaurant in Hong Kong for Chinese New Year's Eve. With Valentine's Day the next night, it seems reasonable to serve the same prix fix menu back-to-back. Our plan is to have a simple 2 or 3 course meal, followed by watching fireworks. We walked all over SoHo today without luck. Suggestions?

Piero's for Italian (obviously) - the stone crab and the osso bucco is legendary. Start at the bar for a cocktail and proceed to your table gracefully. As scene in major motion pictures, but the kitchen is rock solid.

[Vietnam] Hoi An or Hue?

As much as I enjoyed the beach at Hoi An, I found the food wanting. Head to Saigon for Vietnamese food with a flair.
