Take Two:  The former two-Michelin-starred French fine dine Amber has gone under a complete revamp and overhauled its menu.

Look & Feel: Amber’s new interiors feature warm and neutral colors, with low curvy partitions allowing some intimate dining to be done.

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

On the Menu: Amber chef Richard Ekkebus spent his time during the renovation period to explore and experiment with new ingredients to offer 50 new dishes to try in their purest flavors. Ingredients range from Okinawa corn and homemade silken tofu to carnivorous favorites like blue lobster and A5 Wagyu. Diners can choose from an Amber, Extended Amber, or Full Amber multi-course menu — or go completely vegetarian altogether.

If you’re lactose tolerant or allergy-prone, Amber has replaced ingredients like cream and milk, to soy, rice, and nut milk.

Meet the Chef: Chef Richard Ekkebus is no stranger in the culinary world, putting Hong Kong on the dining map with Amber’s consistent World’s 50 Best rankings.

Great For: Fancy evenings out or date night.
