All Day Dining: Restaurateur Yenn Wong and British chef Jason Atherton have teamed up to bring beautiful Aberdeen Street Social to PMQ.

Look & Feel: The two-story space is gorgeous inside and out. The green iron window grilles that wrap around the lone building form a strong motif, and come with matching furniture and walls.

Meet the Chef: Jason Atherton came to prominence as executive chef at Gordon Ramsay’s Maze restaurant in London. He has since gone on to star in his own TV series and conquer the international scene with a slew of branded restaurants.

On the Menu: Modern British fare is offered on a la carte, lunch, brunch and afternoon tea menus. The upper floor is reserved for more formal dining, whereas the ground floor caters to snack/drink/dessert grabbers.

Service: Expect attentive staff who know when to come to your table and when to leave you alone.

Jeng: There are always solid choices on the seasonal a la carte menu, from juicy seabass to tender pork loin. Desserts from the ground-floor bakery — think cookies, chocolate cakes, lemon confit brownies — are out of this world and deserve a trip on their own.

Not So Jeng: Noise levels can get quite intimidating on the upper floor, especially when there’s a full house.

Great For: Got a foodie friend you’d like to impress? Looking for an upscale brunch option? You know where to go.

FYI: Aberdeen Street Social is not the first collaboration between Yenn Wong and Jason Atherton —  they also run 22 Ships in Wan Chai together.
