Nobu, Hong Kong
Located on the second floor of the Intercontinental Hotel, this Japanese restaurant takes its namesake from chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Japanese design elements dominate the interior, including the ceiling that resembles sea urchin texture and a cherry blossom motif at the bar. Lunch offerings (guided by chef Erik Idos) include the spicy salmon roll and grilled sea bass with genmai salsa, while at dinner, cold whitefish sashimi appetizers set the stage for hot entrees such as Chilean sea bass with dried miso.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
